    If you are planning on upgrading to the 770 or 780 in 4-5 months time anyway, why not just buy a single 660?

    Not quite strong enough for what i'm wanting to do right now. Also i won't be picking them up immediately, most likely late in the year. The 660s will also be going into a secondary build back home, for my family to enjoy, and myself when i go home to visit (living in korea and don't want to lug my PC to the other side of the world)

    @Purple Spy, guess I can't argue those points.

    Don't plan to ditch the HDD, plan to use them in conjunction with each other, as HDDs will always be cheaper per GB.
    SSD - OS, Programs, Games
    HDD - pictures, videos, music, any other files.

    That's my plans too. When I said ditch my HDD I meant not use it for anything else but storage. At the moment I can't fit all my programs and games on my current SSD, I would need a pretty big one and I don't think a 500GB SSD will be enough.

    Well, not all games really need to be on an SSD. For example, Diablo 3 literally gets no benefit being on an SSD, since its loading is so minuscule. Just how many games do you have that a 500GB SSD wouldn't be enough? O.o

    Diablo 3 gets a benefit from being on an SSD. If the HDD is slow enough it can cause major stuttering in Diablo 3 as it loads stuff on the fly. Tons of people suffered from that issue :P People who had Diablo 3 on SSD's didn't have these issues.

    That is the only benefit it gets, that I've noticed. But it doesn't really affect anything too poorly, I daresay. Certainly doesn't benefit as much as an MMORPG being on an SSD would, or Skyrim. lol

    I never said everyone suffered from it. I said if the HDD is slow enough. There's more posts on it and I can provide more if you want.

    I'm not saying it doesn't exist. I'm saying i've had no problems what so ever.

    And anyone building a computer this date will automatically get an HDD that is fast enough to read/write D3 while maintaining windows aswell.

    No, you said you never heard about it happening before along with saying you didn't have this happen. Modern hard drives haven't gotten much faster in the last 5 years. They've gone from about 90 to 110MB/s which isn't much of an increase at all.

    Modern hard drives can have this issue happen.

    I can't remember which HDD I used to have Diablo 3 on before moving it to my SSD, but I had the issue - not all the time, but usually if a lot of shit got on the screen, it would stutter for a second. Funny thing is my Cav Green 1.5TB 5900RPM is pretty much equally as fast as my Cav Blue 7200RPM 600GB HDD... probably because the Blue is now 4 years old. :P

    A final shot of the FT03. However, I've now borrowed away the PC to a friend of mine. So I can't take more pictures even if I wanted to! :P



    Also, I've been using a "new" mouse while I'm here... the Steelseries Sensei Raw. Pretty neat. Used it on a Diablo 3 mousemat I found on heavy discount. Liked the artwork. Bought it. The normal...

    The areas that change color pulse at the same speed since you can change the pulse speed on the mouse, so I matched it to the keyboard.
    Great! As someone who has experienced both Naga and G600, what are your initial impressions? Better/worse?

    I don't want to be the big bad mod to come in and rain on anyone's parade, but peripheral talk and personal impressons and inflections would make a great topic for the ever-growing chat thread!

    Anyway, I don't especially care about your opinion of the case itself; what you cannot deny is that the guy is good at what he does. Your taste of aesthetics should not be a hindrance in recognizing this guy is ridiculously dedicated and thorough.
    I should have added a smiley after my statement to emphasize my extreme sarcasm. Sarcasm and wit rarely come through in text.
    Miscommunications aside, yes I agree he's got skill and extreme dedication to his craft.
