Believe they do, ask anyone who have one or check online tests.

Sure, they're faster than a platter drive but warranty period, reliability and speed compared to good quality drives it really isn't worth the hassle. You won't catch me buying a junky SSD. I'll stick with Crucial, Samsung and Intel. If you don't care about your data and time and want the cheapest piece of shit, be my guest.

Thanks Jason. Always shooting for more.

I think ill hold off on the SSD.

I did some reading and in agreeance with many comments made i like this combo

Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz
Radeon HD 7950 3GB

I was looking at the Gigabyte Radeon.

Gigabyte is good. I'd say avoid MSI for, well, pretty much everything. Gigabyte, Sapphire and XFX make pretty good AMD GPU's.

The Gigabyte Windforce one? I have that GPU, although I think the current ones being sold are an upgrade from mine with a locked core voltage. Must be because I only paid $300 for mine and it's now $310. The locked core voltage isn't a big deal unless you plan on heavily overclocking the GPU.

Anyways, the card is quieter and cooler than any card I've ever had. Also comes with 3 games (Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite, and FC3: Blood Dragon. $135 worth of games.

this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125414

but i might go for the sapphier. Costs less and has a nice rebate and free shipping.

So lastly i guess im still undecided about getting the SSD. The only reason im shying away from it is because i don't want it to crash in 2 years. Am i being completely paranoid?

It won't, if you get a good one. I've been running a Samsung 830 for about a year now and have written about 3.7TB to it with a couple of installs of Windows and virtual machine installs, game installs and a bunch of stuff. Still working great. The 840 PRO series is even better and has been out long enough for any issues to be sorted out. I think Crucial is about the best with firmware updates but their M4 drive is pretty old now. It's still not a bad drive, just it isn't as fast as some of the more modern ones.

Do you think the onboard sound on this Asus is better than the my SB Fatality Championship sound card?

Sell your Fatality, grab a Schiit Modi. $100, USB-powered and great sound.

just buy the things you like.
this is going to be a "look, how am I good, I know all that" crap thing.
almost everything is good.
sometimes the one or other a bit better, but not THAT much.

Merlin, there are brands that aren't worth the scrap they're made of. Marketing can sucker you into a crappy product and if you don't know any better, you'll keep buying a new power supply every year. i.e. you get what you pay for.

Must be nice to have that much cash to blow on a computer.
