My old system is due for an upgrade/replacement. I mainly use my machine for office work, but I do play the occasional game.
Truth be told the reason I don't play more games is probably that they don't perform all that well on my old system
Case: Corsair Carbide 200R
CPU: Core i5 3570
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H
RAM: 8 Gig Kingston (or other)
Cooler: Cooler Master 212 Evo
GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7750 or HD 7770 OC
PSU: For the time being I'll stick with my current Corsair VX450W
HDD: The jury is still in but SSD seems tempting
A couple questions:
What sort of gaming can I get away with with the above mentioned GPU's?
- Games like Starcraft 2, Max Payne 3, L.A. Noire etc.
- Full HD is not a requirement.
How loud/silent is the Gigabyte GPU cooler?
Is an SSD drive worth it performance wise as a system drive?
Is an SSD drive worth it for games performance?
I hear bad things about SSD reliability. Is that a real concern?
Any comments and/or advice greatly appreciated.
