SSD or 6970? - Page 2

post #11 of 52
HD 6970 def... SSDs are still very expensive for the performance. Oh and SSD will only load things up quicker not perform any tasks quicker... SSDs are not worth it atm.

A smaller SSD for OS like a 40Gb or so, and another 5770 for CF.

yeah but those advantage you talk is when you have all the files and the software on that SSD so now with the price of SSD the value and satisfaction is better when you buy a GPU like the 6970HD SSD is faster yeah but Pc in general is fast and you don't wait that long. anyways there is some bad and some good about both choice depend on what he is doing on is Pc.

Depends. If you just game, fine. I do work and game, so my hdd was THE slowest thing in my rig. Going to a SSD matched all the other hardware. I use the SSD and two SATA hdds in RAID 0.
Everybody with Win 7 will look at their Windows Experience Index and see the harddrive(s) are probably your lowest score out of all them

If gaming is your priority, get the 6950. Otherwise, get the SSD.

I own both of the items in question.

I would say the SSD is the single largest leap you can make. I went to using a mechanical as a boot drive for a day when moving my data..

Never again.

Buy a new solid state and everything flys. Loading? Done last year. Install a 10GB game? Seconds. It's nearly life altering.

My 6970 is fast as can be, and I too owned a 5770 before this. But unless your pushing 1200/1600 or eyfinity, stick with it for now and try to wait for 7xxx

But then you go to play that game only to realize you're stuck with sub par frame rates.

Going from a GTX 260 to a single HD 6950 was a huge leap for me, even at 1680x1050. GTX 260 is comparable to a HD 4870/HD 5770.

SSD is kinda of pointless anyways. Shaves a second or two here and there, maybe 10 seconds off your boot time.

Edit: yes get the 6970 not the 6950. Too many horror stories about people bricking their 50 trying to flash it to a 70.
Name me one? *Have been running 4 HD 6950's with 1.3V and heavy OC (980/1475) yet still no problems for the past 3 months?
