    1. I don't understand all the weight complaints....

      I don't understand all the weight complaints. Have you seen how much an F150 ACTUALLY weighs??? In most comparisons (where they're tossing a loaded Ford vs a loaded GM or Chevy or Dodge) the Ford is...
    2. It's a scratch drive because artist. Back in the...

      It's a scratch drive because artist. Back in the day you'd use a scratch pad for doodles. This is my understanding of what Photoshop is doing with a dedicated scratch drive. By default it will use...

      He called it a scratch drive. I think it's a Photoshop term/can be used specifically for Photoshop.
    4. An SSD set up can really speed up photoediting...

      An SSD set up can really speed up photoediting especially if you have 2 drives. My friend has a 256GB 840 PRO with a 500GB 850 EVO as a scratch drive and he's wanting to upgrade his Pro as it's...
    5. Oh also extra ram has been shown to reduce wear...

      Oh also extra ram has been shown to reduce wear on an SSD as it's able to more efficiently buffer without additional writes to the SSD. I doubt you'd wear out a 250GB EVO but still...

      Yeah I dunno what GTA is doing but it makes BF4 load times seem nonexistent.
    7. How's it overkill? You're going with a Gaming...

      How's it overkill? You're going with a Gaming videocard. Games are quickly becoming 60 and 70GB for their install. It's to the point where I've actually moved all my games off my SSD as they're just...

      I'm overbudget but you have a 2TB HD and a 250GB Sammy EVO SSD and a board with WiFi. Ram is a little weak at 8GB.
      You could dump Windows 8. 10 is out and rumored...
    9. Wifi or no wifi? No wifi onboard means an adaptor...

      Wifi or no wifi? No wifi onboard means an adaptor that sucks but saves money. Wifi onboard gets you an AC WIFI solution and costs 50ish.
    10. Hybrid drive vs full blown SSD.

      Hybrid drive vs full blown SSD.
    11. Then you don't have properly working drivers and...

      Then you don't have properly working drivers and an old architecture. The only fix is something newer.
      Your 2600k would probably be similar performance actually...

      Use something like MSI's videocard tuner to see if your card is maxed out. 800x600 seems low but then 4890 is what 5 years old and it's bringing cards from last year to its knees.
      As mentioned......

      AV1200 kit is pretty awesome. I got one for a customer and had to play around with it.
    14. G-sync is a $300 adder over a free sync monitor....

      G-sync is a $300 adder over a free sync monitor. Both require monitors that support the standard but free sync is open source and G-sync is a $300 kit.

      And mantle like BRealistic said forced...
    15. The original OEM cooler design sucked ass. The...

      The original OEM cooler design sucked ass. The new coolers are greatly improved over those original lousy designs. Yes they still run hotter than their Nvidia counterparts but a 290X is about the...
    16. I think driver wise they're both fairly equal....

      I think driver wise they're both fairly equal. It's community support that really grates me with Nvidia. Rather than open standards and support Nvidia plays the exclusive bull**** game. Physx and...
    17. Yes but you can get the 970 for under 400 (like...

      Yes but you can get the 970 for under 400 (like 329 I think?) and the 980 is at best 15% faster while being what 60% more expensive? The 980 should be a card that starts at $400 and the uber elite...
    18. The 980 is really overpriced IMO. It's a good...

      The 980 is really overpriced IMO. It's a good card but it should be a $400-$500 card. Value the 290X is far better. The 300 series should also be coming soon which may result in 980 prices adjusting...

      An i3 will be very competitive with a C2D and 8800 in almost all respects except heat and power consumption.

      What's your thoughts?
      I'd say a 2 or 3 TB drive possibly with the Linux partition.
      A minimum 250gb SSD
      The best i5 you can afford
      An MSI or Asus Z97 with wifi
      A case you like - preferable...
