    When I upgraded my computer I changed everything but my PSU, one of my HDD and my graphics card (my psu is plenty good still and I couldn't afford a graphics card at the time). When I get the change I plan to grab an AMD graphics card.

    Windows 7 (64bit)
    16GB RAM
    AMD FX-6200 Six Core
    NVidia Geforce Gtx 260
    mobo: Asus Sabertooth 990fx
    HD1: VelociRaptor 300GB 10,000RPM SATA 6.0
    H2: Hitachi 1TB (Old HDD, plan to upgrade to a Western Digital Black. Or something else depending on how long it takes me to upgrade.)


    Odds are I wont be upgrading for a while, money is very tight/non-existent at the moment. So my plans for upgrades will probably change.

    SSD's are much more expensive and don't store as much.

    I needed more storage for cheaper.

    You don't use them for ALL OF YOUR STORAGE, you just install the operating system on it so that your boot time gets reduced from 50 seconds to 4, and so that the speed of the operating system increases equivalently. Then you use the 1TB 7200RPM drive for storage, either as-is or by making appropriate links so that My Documents etc. automatically stores there.
