I need advice for my new pc

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I'll buy new pc next week
i think like this ;
Cpu: 2600K // 2500K
Mobo: Msi P67A-GD80 // Asus Sabertooth P67
Ram: G.Skill RipjawsX 1600mhz CL7/CL6
Vga: HD6950(will be @6970 mod + crossfire)
HDD/SSD: 120gb Ocz vertex2 // 500gb WD Caviar Black

and ı have some problems about the price
should ı buy 500gb WD caviar black + HAFX
or ı use my case and 120gb ssd
ı dont need more capacity when ı buy ssd cause ı have external wd 3tb
What's the better choice ?
Thank you

Depends on what your current case is. If it's a piece of junk with limited airflow through it, then you should definitely invest into a new case (HAF X should be fine) that'll be worthy of housing your new components. Also, the SSD is nice to have but unless you're going to be installing all of your games etc. onto your 3TB external drive (which is not ideal), I'd recommend you buy a 1TB internal drive (a Caviar Black would be fine) to install all of the stuff that isn't going to fit on your SSD.

Use 120gb ssd + your pc case,
u dont need 2600k unless u do heavy rendering tasks like animation rendering & all,take 2500k,its a champ,
for the mobo get the p67 sabertooth,
u havent mentioned about your psu,
get a corsair hx750/tx850

Okay, but what about the case? Is the case that you have right now a good one? Because if it isn't one with good airflow, your new build may end up running a little hot.

Yes SSD's are worth it, my gaming rig loves it and boots in 20 secs after post . Far as 2600k goes you don't need it just the 2500k, but i got the 2600k and turned off hyper threading. But far as a case goes, if your case doesn't have good airflow, doesn't have enough room, doesn't have good cable management, and no upgrade options to add more fans or etc, then seriously spend extra to get a better case. NZXT phantom or corsair 800D

P.S Not every game will benefit from a SSD. But you will get faster loading times, and when it comes to multiplayer you will be first one on the map. Unless everyone you're playing with & against has a ssd. But ever heard the saying " Once you go black, you never go back." Well same goes with SSD once you go SSD, you never will go back to HDD.

It really depends on how much space you need. If you think you can get by on 120GB, by all means, go for it; however, if you think 120GB is a little small (I think it is), you should get a 1TB HDD or maybe the SSD and a small 500GB HDD to go along with it.

You can also always buy the HDD afterwards, after you have run out of room on your SSD. You don't have to buy it right now.
