Okay. They were saying you can't get many games and windows with a 500gb. But I think he could get 8 games or so
Okay thank youThat is a silly notion. I have a 240Gb as my primary SSD and I have a couple dozen steam games installed. Given I dont play too many very large AAA games, and I just rotate them when I do, but with 500Gb he should have no trouble installing all his favorites, and he can just move them to the HDD if he stops playing one but doesn't want to delete the files. My MediaPC has a 480Gb SSD and its loaded down with tons of media and games.
Okay thanks. Does that build look solid and can be confidently recommended?
Abolutely! I think your friend will be very pleased. Especially if you can talk him into a little overclocking. It's really not difficult and the cooler you chose will allow him a modest overclock. We could walk him through the process. We've all done it many times and helped many others on this forum to do it.
Best way to get him to "want" to OC his system is set him up with a popular benchmark. This lets the user see measured gains in performance.You are completely right. Thanks for the reassurance. Ill tell him about it and let him decide. Thanks for your help and everyone elses.
Yeah I experienced that one. And no. But we have a copy and key for him.Did you remember to include the cost of the OS in all of this?
And speaking of the OS, make sure you don't connect the spinner storage drive until after you are finished installing Windows on the SSD. Windows has a tendency to spread itself onto multiple disks sometimes when it has the opportunity during installation.
