is there much difference in getting 8 gig to 16 gig ?
would this be ok for what i need , mostly gaming rig
thanks for any replys
If you are just gaming even 8gb is like overkill lol. I definitely don't think you will need 16gb, but its up to you, maybe down the line you might need it for something. But I doubt it would be for gaming.
480 is still a good card, so no point getting a new gfx card.
I would recommend a Corsair PSU. I've always stuck with Corsair when it came to PSU's. Great customer support too. But to be fair I have never used P&C.
8 gigs isn't overkill at all, I think it's a perfect amount to get. 4 just isn't enough anymore, with all the stuff sitting around in the background, lord forbid you want to keep a firefox window running while you game. 16 is indeed overkill for most applications though.
id say go for how ever much you want. i always say you cant have to much ram. but yea go for the vengence ive heard good things about it. and a corsair psu as well
not that im a corsair fanboy or anything
im also wondering what would it be like say i got a 64gig version for just my OS and programs then any games i installed like bf3 etc onto my 2nd just normal sata drive, what effect would this have on performance loading it from my 2nd drive would there be no point in having the SSD for just my OS.
i mean im not to fussed about pc loading up quicker from when i turn it on
For starters, Intel SRT is useless over 60gb BUT what could be an awesome route would be partitionning your ssd in 2: you use 60gb for the smart cache and the rest you put your OS on, that way you get lightning fast boot times and the SRT quickness in your every days tasks/games.
