Default Re: My Gaming Rig

It's a good GPU. It's just you asked if anything could be improved. For more performance as a mainly gaming rig, the GPU is the most important part (as long the other hardware can keep up, which in your case it can). So if you want to spent more money, spend it on the SSD and GPU.

If it was me personally i would improve the system with a Samsung Evo 840 pro SSD (i have it my elf) a slight better PSU (just because i am a fan of eco frendly stuff. I have a platinum PSU) and then a better GPU. But that's gonna cost a great deal more.

I found this SSD.
Mushkin 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (MKNSSDCR120GB-7) - PCPartPicker United Kingdom

It's 15 bucks more expensive, but you get almost twice the space and it's faster than your chosen SSD.

I literally bought that for my old Dell PC a month or so ago, and it works really well. I was just about to recommend him it, then you did.

The games that you play regularly, and Windows 7. But all videos, pictures, most games, and documents put on the HDD not the SSD.

The OS, the browser, all auto startup programs and most used programs.
