My System Specs


If you were to go from Caviar Greens to SSD, you will figuratively be blown away. I'm telling you this so that you can go into an SSD upgrade with your mind 'pre-blown'. HA!

No, seriously. Greens are just about the worst boot drive you can have. I use them in my HTPC, and they're pretty slow. I'm willing to tolerate them in my SSD because I need a lot of cheap storage, but they definitely wouldn't cut it in my gaming rig.

Seriously, these days adding an SSD is probably the single biggest improvement you can make to a PC!

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
