Get a SSD :)
Or an IPS Panel Monitor
Or sell your 270X and use that cash with the 25K to get a 280X (if your a serious gamer)

Thank you for the opinion bro!
What I thought was getting one of these,
1. 120GB SSD (Which you also preferred) or
2. WD 2TB Black or
3. Corsair H105 or 100i (If I'm going with this I will have to change my chassis too :()

Still could not get the final decision..

Best SSDs are Samsung evo PRO, kingston hyperx 3k, Samsung evo.

Dont waste ur cash on corsair ssds like the force series. They r really slow compared to d above mentioned.

I wud recommend a cooler master hyper 212 evo. It cools just like the corsair H60(same temps). No use going for a H100i or anything becoz of ur 25k budget.....

That's a bunch of BS. I bet you a million bucks that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between either of them put side by side in real life.

If you don't use large files often, then the important figure for an average user is random IOPS figure. Anything upwards of 70k is good enough.

Well the transfer rate is what matters the most. Get ur facts straight!!!!.

P.S: Get the above mentioned ssds to ur shop. I bet ur ssd sales will go up. ;D

Thanks for the info bro!

Thanks for your ideas guys! I'll be upgrading my GPU later on! Decided to go for a SSD Drive.. Will a 240GB drive be a waste if I only use it as the C: drive? I won't be putting anything on C drive other than windows and some programs....

A 128GB SSD would be more than enough for OS + some important programs :D

Sapphire TOXIC R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 with Boost


THAT. will be ur future problem. If you play with high graphics. Try Watchdogs on that. It wont get you 40FPS if im correct. Keep that 25k and sell ur 270x and add some more and get a 280x or a 290. 2GB Vram is getting outdated. GTA V is coming, We have seen what Watchdog can do. So be future proof. Whats the point of getting an SSD? yeah boot time will be faster. Other than that, its kinda waste. Unless if you are gonna put Skyrim with 10GB of textures in to that SSD.

But I have an issue I cannot go for a Graphics Card at the moment.. My dad will never let me buy a graphics card this soon because it's like only 5-6 months since I bought the toxic.. :( :'(

Watch dogs is one of the worst optimized game. Leave that out when comparing graphics cards. Doesn't justify the resource allocation. So you are good with r9 270x "for now".

SSDs are faster than HDD in application launching and boot time. But really that's not a strong point while working on apps. ( It works great when saving huge chunks of data inside apps )

Spend 5K on a Hyper eve 212 cooler. ATM spending a SSD is not a good deal. ( As you are in SL )

Q for OP :

I still can't figure out why you went with an expensive mobo + stock cooler and 270x. you could have easily get a z87 at 19K and put the rest to a 280x. Does it have considerably awesome features than a 19K Z87 board? Do you guys really use them?
