    personally i would have went with a 1tb HDD since they are around 7 dollars more than the 500gb model and a newer operating system on the account that windows 8.1 and 10 are around the same price and offer better performance for the money spent and maybe bump the PSU up to a 650 from evga, its fully modular and it comes with an 80+ gold rating. thats just my thoughts on this but the way it is, is actually well thought out if you think about it from a budget perspective. happy trials to you _^

    I've tried Windows 8.1 and I hated it compared to 7. 10 doesn't sound much better, but we'll have to wait and see.

    I already had the PSU before I went with a new MOBO, video card and ram. Yeah, I should have went with a higher wattage but that's a future purchase in a couple years.

    I already have both hard drives and a 1TB external, but yeah, bigger hard drives (probably an SSD) down the line.

    Thanks for the comments :)

    well the main reason that i even suggested 10 is that its been named "the gamers OS", pretty much the best OS for gaming and also i use it and the boot times are super fast even on a 5400rpm laptop drive. but your choice is truly up to you in the end, i am just here to offer advice and insite _^

    p.s. windows ten is like 7 but has cortana and a few other things added in but the main thing is that it gives you a start menu :D

    I appreciate that :D

    And what you say about 10, that sounds good to me. Is the upgrade from 7 to 10 really free?

    if it is still showing on your desktop then yes it is, it is completely free for life and you will not have to ever pay for it

    Yeah, I've got two 500GB internal HDD's already in my current system. Will probably upgrade to SSD's in the future.

    not to burn on this post in any way but it is always good to have an HDD or hybrid drive as your mass storage as SDD's have a certain amount of read and writes before they wear out. on that matter with newer tech the SDD's are becoming more and more worth it and for instance the 850 evo series from samsung will live its life span longer than it will take for you to upgrade it to something bigger and better _^

    I'm going to hold out for a couple years and I'm sure the SSD's will have drastically dropped from the high price they are at currently. I still don't fully understand how SSD's really work...is it just a fancier HDD?

    • 54 months ago

    an SSD or Solid State Drive has no moving parts and is essentially a giant flashdrive with the ability to read and write at up to 500+Mbs

    So is it better to put your OS on the SSD or just programs/files you need to access?
