What advantages does an SSD add besides faster system loadings?

On the 2600K vs 2500K debate. I understand the aspect of for solely a gaming PC 2600K is the incorrect choice, but isn't there any added value in having hyperthreading though for an HTPC? I've also thought it a bad idea to go for less on a CPU.
The Vertex IIIs were announced officially last week. Might take a week or two to hit retail channels (mid march?)

If you're going to be doing any encoding for the content on your HTPC and/or run any type of multi-threaded app, the Hyperthreading will help. Better to have too much than too little I say...

Having seen what the 2600k does with folding @ home, that is a seriously impressive cpu. It will definitely chew up anything you throw at it which can use more threads. My 4ghz xeon seems about half as strong as a 2600k! (Maybe more like 60%)

if you have the $ now, don't skimp on the important things. You can always add a ssd later. And if ivy bridge fits the same socket, someone here on ocn would buy your 2600k.

Your build looks good to me,
Chris

There will be Ivy Bridge 1155 chips. Another good reason to invest in 1155

Just wondering....what advantages does the ax have over the tx besides being modular? What exactly is gold certification and why is it advantageous to have in a system?

Gold rated systems are more efficient meaning lower energy bills for you over the years. The more you leave your computer on (i leave mine on 24/7/365) as it is not only a gaming machine but a file server as well. Those pennies add up.

Not only that, but getting gold certification generally means some of the very best components are used meaning you're less likely to have reliability/longevity issues with a gold rated PSU.

And the AX is modular. If you're not running a packed system it helps not having erroneous cables floating around inside your case.

Thanks so much Cyb0rg you seem to reply within minutes everytime its awesome!. I noticed on newegg the ax850 is the same price as the ax750 is there any reason to not go with the 850?

Also, how heavy should I weigh the lifespan of SSD's into purchasing one because it seems the Vertex III is going to be rather expensive and I want to make sure it's going to last. Thanks!
