  1. Hi Guys! I hope you have the time to see this post and give me some suggestions on Upgrading my PC.

    Bought all of these parts last June 9, 2014.
    This is my Rig

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 (Service Pack 1)
    ECS Elite Group Deluxe H87 H3-M 1150
    i5 - 4570 CPU @ 3.20 GHZ
    HyperX Fury 8gb 1600mhz
    PSU 600WATS Cougar
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Twin Frozr 256mb 2GB GDDR5
    BenQ 22" LED 1920x1080
    HDD 1TB for Storage
    500GB split this into half Disk C: has 250 where I install my OS at and Local Disk D: where I put my games/saved games.
    PC Case: Ostrog Enermax

    I mainly created this Rig for gaming.

    I'm planning to buy an SSD soon, any tips? Already read the most budget SSD is the Crucial m4 ssd 128gb
    Also thinking of upgrading my Motherboard. Also, if ever I'm changing my MOBO, do you guys think I need to change my PSU as well?

    Thoughts/Opinions/Suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thank you!

    There is no gain using an SSD for storage. I would buy an SSD to transfer the system and applications to. Format the existing drive for a storage drive. That will give you the full benefit of the speed that an SSD will give you. Try some PC trans software. They do the job well.

    Thank you so much! Any other comments on my rig aside from adding an SSD?
