Are OCZ drives suppose to be bottom of the barrel? Do their SSDs crap out more than other brands?
Yes OCZ drives are crap. Unstable, prone to breakdown, you pay for RMA shipping costs. Not worth the headache. Best to stick to Crucial or Samsung SSDs. The rest are so-so, but avoid OCZ like a plague...
Guess I'm one of lucky ones because I've had zero problems with my ocz ssd...
I've used the 60GB and 120GB Agility 3's and haven't had issues. I'm using the 60GB as my Smart Response Cache right now actually and I haven't had a single issue in the last couple months since I installed it (switched it over from a laptop and did a fresh windows installation).
CLARIFICATION: OCZ has a pretty terrible track record and, although it seems most of that is due to a premature launch of 2nd Gen Sandforce Agility 3's and Vertex 3's, there have also been some issues with Octane and Solid 3 drives. I'll buy OCZ if it's a good deal, but they're never my first choice.
Thanks to all of you. Got to work but I will check back into this later and check those sites out you posted Elderwynd. Thanks again I feel more confident now for decisions. peace!
Don't start a build with two mediocre cards for SLI (not that these cards suggested do SLI).
How much do you plan on spending on this gaming build? Typically 30-45% or so of a gaming build's price should be graphics. I strongly suggest you get stronger graphics if you're talking about BF3: http://www.tomshardware.com/revie...297-7.html
A 7850 typically gets about double a GTX 650's performance for about double it's price, which is an unusually good bargain. But don't forget it'll OC like a beast. The "GTX" in the 650 is pretty much a misnomer.
I can't think of a single reason you shouldn't go for one of the $149 Radeon 7850 deals. What other parts are you looking at? DO NOT NEGLECT YOUR POWER SUPPLY. Stick to Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX unless you really do a lot of research. A bad power supply will KILL all your other parts.
