  1. I just bought the SSD (Samsung 840 Pro series 256GB) and I've read a lot of forum threads about the performance with my particular motherboard. Apparently the Marvell Sata3 is not as fast as the Intel SATA2 and yet the perfomance of the SSD is not that great. So I'm wondering if my next upgrade should be the new motherboard from MSI and the processor to be able to get the full perfomance boost from the SSD?
  2. Hi guys. I'm in the middle of saving up for a new upgrade and was hoping I could get some help as to which components I should start off with. Current system specs Mobo: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R CPU: Intel i7 950 (3.06 GHz) GPU: Gigabyte GTX580 Ram: 12GB Corsair Vengeance (1600mhz) HDD: 1TB WD SSD: Currently broken Case: HAF922 My upgrading thoughts Mobo: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming CPU: Intel i7-4770K (Haswell) GPU: EVGA SC GTX780 Ram: No upgrade HDD: No upgrade SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series (256GB) Case: No upgrade I won't be able to buy all upgrades at once, but I want to buy them in 3 stages. 1. Mobo+CPU 2. GPU 3. SSD The problem is that I'm not sure in which order I should get these upgrades. My current mobo does not support PCIE 3.0 for the GPU so I'm unsure if the upgrade will do any good - Also I'm wondering if the current CPU will be a bottleneck on the GPU. Which order would you recommend?
