No problem at all.

The bottleneck would depend on the game you're playing. However, that machine seems decently balanced so there is no big obvious bottleneck.

agree. should be quite balanced and it will be game dependent for what limits your system.

Only thing that will bottle neck is the hdd (and any game / program you install on it rather than the ssd)

As far as other bits go, your looking good

WEll normally the thing that "bottlenecks" a computer is the storage drive. It is commonly said that the slowest component is your HDD, normally when listing the benefits of an SSD. I agree that it is really not a bottleneck for games/tasks, but it is the slowest component, like most computers.

First of all, thnx guyz for ur help and secondly, if HDD creates some kinda problm, then no worries, due to less budget i was actually unable to buy ssd, soon i'll buy Vetex 3 or Crucial M4 or maybe Intel one. And what about that HDD by WD, VelociRaptor, its 10,000rpm? But i'll soon purchase ssd for boot and for game installation!

Thanks guyz and HardwareCanucks :)

Don't bother with the Velociraptor, it's not worth the money compared to SSD.

If programs are installed on it they will load slow compared to faster drives / SSD.. That is all I meant.



There is no point in getting a Velociraptor at all.
My personal preference is to get a faster storage drive.. but then I transfer allot of data and hate waiting for it
(though load times don't bug me much lol)
