SSD or 6970? - Page 3

post #21 of 52
Thread Starter 
Can't stay with it the 5770 Battlefield 3 will not run maxed on it. I don't want to crossfire yet. That will be a future upgrade. It will be the 6970 next then the ssd then the Crosshair V. Then I'll see what the bulldozer can do.

I'd go with the 6970 over the SSD.

Keep lying to yourself bud.

A quality SSD is one of the biggest improvements a system can have. Not to mention they will pretty much remove any frame rate stuttering in open-world games such as WoW, Oblivion, Fallout, etc which love to thrash the hard drive to load the environments as you move around (Assuming you install the game on the SSD)

It's the first rig i have w/ ssd and i can say that it make the night and day.

To say that's pointless devices is irrelevant.
