    SSD Truths and Myths?

    SSD's are the best upgrade you can give your computer if you don't already have one.

    OCZ Synapse

    It works even if you don't have a Z68 board. All 64 or 128GB are used as cache. If you plug it in a SATA3 port it will give you speeds like that of a regular SSD while still retaining the capacity of your HDD.

    Spinpoint F3 1tb Issues?

    Too bad, My F3 is doing good.

    Which SSD to get during the deal days?

    Is the Crucial M4 SSD as good as that Agility 3?

    3TB Seagate External

    At that price those drives are a steal. Nice.

    SSD + HDD

    Well, OCZ has a new line of SSDs called Synapse. They SSDs that function as cache. http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-synapse-cache-sata-iii-2-5-ssd.html Got great reviews on a lot of sites.

    Which SSD to keep!?

    Whichever you choose, give me the other one. Come it's Christmas. Stick with the Intel SSD. More storage would be better in the long run, as their speed is negligible when using them as boot drives.

    how much would a sound card help me

    For the casual user the motherboard's onboard sound would suffice. Audiophiles however prefer to have a dedicated soundcard to go with their high end speaker setup.

    Logitech Z5500 > Logitech Z906?

    The X-540 speakers are better than the Z506 as well in my opinion.

    I hope this isnt true

    Competition makes better products as well as lower prices. I hope AMD gets back up on top.
  15. Price adjustment as well as better performance for BD please.
