Personally two cards are only worth it if you are going FULL out Ultra and if the game really needs it. Personally I dont care if my Frames per second is 100 or 200 heck I dont really care for Ultra settings. I rather not have things looking to real lifish or am just going to start thinking of Real life again which I dont want from a game. But if the game is playable at a ressonable FPS then am fine. But I really dont see it worth having two. You just put more strain on your system and power usage. But thats my personal feeling on it. Its the same with watercooling. Not worth it unless you are OCing your system. But then again. Why even bother OCing your system when the Stock levels are fine in my veiw.
Yep reason why I have windows on its own incase I have to wipe clean and re install. The mods are only there because some games want them there in the My Doc's..... Which is a pain.
@Neo7. I might look at them keyboards. But normal ones feel just fine to me. I think I did see one before and it was like £100 give or take of it. But al still have a look at them later.
@element5. I did speak to some gaming pro's I played with and they see no change in gaming with an SSD other than system loading quicker. Also yes the cost to size ratio is not worth it to.
On custom builds I tend to have windows on its own drive with nothing else, programs on another and games on its own. So as to what space I have left depends. Since some games want the mods on the C drive so that would need to be at lest 500gb since many of the mods I use are scary large and I rather have a large space there just incase.
As towards my gaming drive. I have only got 33.7gb left out 300gb. I have 25 games installed via steam and other accross other DLPS. My storage drive is an ext 1tb I have about 125gb left on there. Basicly my audio, mods, images, photos, documents and programs.
As to when I build systesm or update them Depends! Back in the day I tended to build my systems to be a few years proof give or take. So they can at least be upated to a high to very high spec. I never did nor will do ultra spec. But if I remember right with my last build it was 4 years after I built my first and I stopped using my second build which was an AGP (GPU) and an AMD (CPU) at the start of 2007 due to space reasons.
But my main thing I try to stick to as best as possible to make it at least three to four years proof. I know its hard to think thats possible. But you can do it.
If you are like me and have alot of games on your system and are not to bothered about the load times. Then the standard Sata 3 7200rpm will do you fine. Even on HD textures.
SSD does load quicker. But! They are smaller in size and cost can rocket up on them with larger sizes. Personally, I feel the normal sata 3 drives will do you fine for gaming even on HD to. But like I said SSD's do load quicker.
You might need to buy more if you are like me with a lot of games on with alot of mods! Then they are not really worth the money to size ratio. Wait a bit for the bigger sizes to drop in price or just save for the bigger SSD's.
