SSD or 2nd Video card

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Considering an upgrade and with an eye to future proofing, am having a bit of internal struggle. I could go with this,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220509
and use it on my next builds or another
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814500185

I primarily game but do some photo editing as well.

A 2nd GPU will give you the biggest upgrade if you're doing games. SSD's will make just about everything else run/load faster. You could always pickup another 570 and buy a smaller SSD for your OS. That's where the SSD's really shine anyway. Hope this helps

Get an SSD, it is by far the best upgrade you can do for your PC.

I would go with an Intel SSD with that Nvidia chipset. I would also wait for Intels new line of SSD's to come out soon. The Intel SSD's work better with less hassles with Nvidia boards. That Sandforce drive is not going to perform up to specs in IDE mode.

If you had to buy now, i would say go with the SSD. You will notice improvements in just about everything. Since you are into editing photos, it would benefit that too. A video card would just increase your game performance and nothing more.

Or as suggested above, you could go with a smaller SSD , just as a boot drive and spend the remaining on the 2nd 570.

COD, MOH, Crysis 2. Pretty much like to max out everything. Resolution depends on what monitor I'm hooked into (house has been under renovation) right now I'm playing at 1360x768. Soon to be 1920x1080
