Re: Phenom II in Blue

That blue theme works really well! Have you thought about going SSD? That will make a huge difference.

Re: Phenom II in Blue

thanks, that was actually a part of my upgrade plan, i am trying to save some money to get two (one to boot win and to install software and second to install my games)

Re: Phenom II in Blue

SSD's are awesome for OS's. When I upgraded my 120GB OS SSD to a 250GB SSD, I left the 120GB in my PC and installed a few games on it. And to be completely honest, I didnt notice a difference while playing games. TF2 would launch just as fast as when it was on my 7200RPM 1TB WD Blue. Same thing for a couple of other games I had installed.

Unless youre trying to get away from HDD's, I would just get a SSD for your OS and keep games on your HDD.

Re: Phenom II in Blue

thanks for the advice, not that i am trying to get away but i thought my games might load faster too... but if it won't make a difference i'll probably get an ssd for boot drive and try to put my 500gb drives in raid0
