I don't have any form of an overclock, I want the system to run stable first lol!

Well remembered from the Crysis Thread, I'm bamboozled as to what to do! I reformatted yesterday as I said, and it didn't change a thing, still crash in all games except Aliens vs Predator!

I need to find out more about my BIOS, I'm not used to the layout, so I could be missing so much.

I'm going to format again now, just in case, and not even try any games until I've installed everything properly.

Thanks for confirming I need a reformat (which I was considering myself again today).

I'll be right back, just reformatting lol!

From my experience, people don't get SSD because they are skeptical of the performance boost they will get from it. Even I didn't realise the difference it would make before I got one in my new system (sig rig). It's true you can still get great performance without one (i.e. RAID) but it's also true they make a wonderful addition. If anything, a less powerful system benefits from them even more.

My last experience of this was my mate was putting together a spec for building a new semi-budget system. I told him to get SSD if he could, and he went into the whole argument you will see all over these types of threads: "It costs so much more than a 1TB HDD and it won't make a big difference will it?". I had to do my best to persuade him otherwise, and guess what - now he loves SSD.

Like I said in another topic, every system should have SSD and HDD. The point about capacity being a premium is a really bad point since you shouldn't be using your SSD as a storage drive to begin with.

late to discussion maybe, but I chose a nice processor over an ssd because ssd's still seem overpriced to me. hdd's used to be a lot more expensive, and I just got a 1tb internal for $20. I feel like if I give it a year, the same will happen with ssd's

If your getting 30fps then its not very high quality video, so I wouldn't expect an SSD to make a difference. transcode a raw m2ts and see how many FPS you get then.

If you do do a lot of encoding as I do then chances are those big TB drives are not going to be in your main pc; but networked in a seperate pc. In addition you will probably be using Raid 5 or 6 neither of which have particually impressive writes.
Last part is 100% true.
Middle part I don't understand though, I said I get about 5 fps on a high quality raw m2ts when transcoding to x264.

Ok, not being an ass, however I have no idea how a ssd would help out my 3 2600k/2500k, 1090t, and i7-870 setups. If someone could give me some examples, I'd appreciate it and rep you.

Both my 2600k are for folding only, they don't even have keyboards attached to them at the moment.

The 2500k is in my htpc, p67 motherboard with a 4670 graphic card. I'd switch the gpu with a 570 or 460 if I can figure out how to fix to the overscan problem I'm having. There doesn't seem to be an option in the tv settings. So I went with the only fix I know of, going amd/ati over nvidia. Probably won't game on this one, see next setup.

i7-870 is my internet computer, the only games I played in the last two months are Zombie Farm, Zombie Cafe, and Smurf's Village (don't ask) and those aren't even on the pc.

The 1090t might end up as a 30tb server for my files in the near future.

Thank you in advance.

What ever you do put everything at STOCK speeds and lower you memory and set the timings to AUTO, but do put the right voltage on you DRAM.

Show one source that proves that today's SSDs have a short life. Because even if you did nothing but write to one 24/7 at full speed, it would take 5 years to wear it out.
