    Been saving for a while, and now I finally have enough to build a pretty powerful gaming desktop. Just sharing in case anyone here likes computer stuffs!

    -AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8120FRGUBOX

    -VisionTek 900505 Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

    -ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

    -CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9R

    -Ultra LSP750 750-Watt Power Supply

    Loving the setup, but are you sure you want to go for an SSD right now? They're getting updated every day, and you could install one yourself later at a better price.

    The SSD is the biggest controversy for me. I would definitely like to have it at the beggining for installing Windows 7 on, but I can't afford both the SSD and an HDD. So it came down to choosing between the two.
    I could get a 1tb hdd for less.
    But the speed of an SSD is so amazing.
    In the end, the reason I decided on the SSD is this comp will be only used for games I am currently playing. I still have my laptop for general storage and auxiliary stuff.
    But a 120gb SSD with windows can still handle 3-4 games.
    Idk, it's a tough decision.

    EDIT: And thanks! I am loving the setup too. It took me a while to solidify.

    Id go for the SSD personally, having your op system boot off one of those bad boys makes your pc run like its on coke.

    Yeah, I would rather it be a super clean, fast system. Hard drives slow down over time, and SSD's don't. My plan is to just add SSD over time.

    Thanks About! I am so excited!

    I suppose for extra storage an external drive could be used. Well your build looks pretty damn solid, so best of luck with it, and I hope for your sake nothing goes wrong. I've felt that horrible pain before sad
