if you want boot time speed/program loading speed get a ssd.

if you want great audio/are an audiophile, get the 595s.

if you absolutely hate what you type on, get a blackwidow.

i voted for the 595s by the way.

Get headphones.
post #13 of 22
Well if you have a SATA3 hdd I don't see why you'd want to spend all that money on a drive that you'd probably only have space for windows and one game on...

I'd save money till I have something worth buying, but, as this is you and not me:

The SSD will make a big impact on your boot times and load times for whatever programs you put on there. Sure, it will, so if I had to choose I'd get an SSD. I'd try and get a Sandforce one (or maybe I'm out of date and they're no longer king of SSD's), and sacrifice speed for space. So look at lots of reviews before you buy. If you spend lots and lots of time playing 1 to 2 games (I am just assuming you'd put windows on there) then this would probably be a worthwhile upgrade for you.

I'd never seen a reason to get a gaming keyboard except for macro keys. So if you're playing games that would be considerably enhanced by the addition of macro keys then you can think about the keyboard.

And the headphones... well... I get by with no name brands but I admit that I'm poor and for some people they're not good enough. But I think that the ones you have should be fine unless you want a headset with mic, in which case you still don't need $150 dollars for a pair of very good headphones.
Yay

Agreed.

SSD's are a luxury. They'll come down in price one day, get the headphones second hand or save the money for the future.

SSD's for performance - That would be an investment, how would it not be?

You having an SSD in your computer even when others have better hardware =/= you still having a snappier PC unless benching/gaming

But you'd have better load/read/write times.

There will be better SSDs for cheaper later.
But headphones and keyboards don't change that much.

So HD595 or BlackWidow. What headphones do you currently have?

SSD's make taht big of a difference. now you'll be able to turn on ur pc and surf the net in less than 30 seconds, instead of 1 minute and 30 seconds.

The best and cheapest upgrade for any computer would be an SSD.

Hands down: SSD. It will bring you the most noticeable, and often used increase in happiness in performance. If you game a lot, I'd choose the keyboard second. Of course, I'm an audio junkie at heart too so I can see wher ethe 595's are tugging at your heart strings.
