  1. In that case I highly recommend it so far. I just put about 300 gb of videos and pictures onto it and read/write times seem to be great, especially for the price.
  2. Thanks man! Appreciate the advice - I wish I could just auto-follow my threads automatically instead of any I comment on, I always forget to click follow! :wacko: I actually installed the blue drive the other night because I lacked a final SATA connector for my mobo. No real complaints at all! It's surprisingly fast for an HDD, but I would always still suggest an SSD for fast loading times. I really love the HDD so far.
  3. I made an account a few weeks ago and began posting here and a few other forums to get advice on a gaming rig. I knew nothing about computer components, and I learned so much in short time with kind folks help. I want to sincerely thank this community right here for helping me put all this together. When I finally got all my parts, I was so excited that I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted so I apologize for that: https://imgur.com/a/u3ITX.

  4. Good suggestion, can I ask why I don't need the extra wattage? If I overclock and maybe utilize a second GPU in the future, wouldn't the extra 100W be worth it? Again, just asking because I'm curious, I am not an expert. Also, that guy is a moron.
  5. I was wondering the same thing...
  6. I might actually be looking to utilize two GPUs down the line. Why is this SSD a bad choice for that? Thanks m8
  7. So, after getting some great advice from this awesome community I am about to wrap up and buy my parts for gaming and perhaps overclocking build. But first, I would LOVE any and all final tips or suggestions! Especially if you know of great/better monitors.

  8. I think this thread may be dead but this is my final build. Gonna postpone buying the build till tomorrow to get a little more advice though. Will re-post this build if thread is dead.

  9. Well, I won't just be gaming but that's the main point of the build. Could I ask why you say that about the GPU? What sort of other things make a GPU a "gaming" GPU or not? Do some GPUs run certain media better or something? Thanks m8!
  10. I think I'll get rid of the fans and buy them later if needed.

  11. Well, I can always put more storage in later when I get more money. I might look around at more CPU coolers but I don't know where to start. I know you haven't said anything about the video card, but what do you think of this one?: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-gtx970gaming4g?It's Radeon so I bet CoolaxGaming would have an opinion too?
  12. Should I go with a 212 EVO and use the extra money for a 2TB HDD? Any suggestions on the HDD man?
  13. Like this GPU?: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-r9290xedfd and have any suggestions on the PSU there? CoolaxGaming have to say I agree with you so far so I'll trust you on the PSU.
  14. So I'm about to make this purchase, but would love some input before I do. Be super critical if you can. Am I getting too much cooling and not focusing on the CPU enough? Is my video card good for overclocking? Is this a really good SSD, or is there a better one? All tips and criticisms help and are greatly appreciated. I can stretch my budget a bit more if needed and get rid of the optical disc drive.
