GamersNexus: "Welcome to another edition of Mik's picks. For this weekend's hardware sales, I found great deals on a GPU, HDMI cable, monitor, PSU, and an SSD."
Samsung 840 ssd= best solid state drive out there, hands down.
The vertex 5 series is about to come out, would avoid the 840 because all the ssds are almost a year old and about to be replaced.
Its not a bad PSU at all but if it was me id spend a bit more on the PSU, if you can pick up a Seasonic PSU or a PSU that has been manufactured by Seasonic for another brand i.e some XFX,Corsair, etc are made by Seasonic.
I'm happy with my Ultra X3 ULT40311 1000watt PSU. When I got it it was around 300, but now it's around half that or less. Great modular PSU with efficiency. I think My next upgrades will be 500+gb SSD and a GTX7xx.
a 1000W PSU ? are you running like 3 GPUs ?!
Samsung 840 Pro = best performance and reliability, i'll prob buy the 256gb version this year. Next year or later this year i'll build a whole new rig on DDR4 memory, upgrade from my i7 920 (even tho i don't need to upgrade really) bad thing is it will prob cost me a grand for a full upgrade including gfx card but it will last a long time. Hard to believe it's already been nearly 4 and a half years since i built my i7 rig and still going like a champ!
