Yet another side-step. Classic.
Also, new hardware runs worse on old operating systems as well as old software.
False ...

Until Win10 all previous has backward-compatibility (the same for CPU) - e.g. DirectX ... 3D application based on DX7 will work without problem in DX11 environment.
If I played ..? Most recently in Trespasser (1998 - I don't expect you to remember it) on my based on Xeons machine - not to mention GPUs, chance were very small for this game to work properly, but you know what?  It runs flawlessly. Moreover it's not an exception.

Only games based on UE1 work too fast so they crash at some point, but this engine has build-in microinstruction to slow it down.

Anyways, I see some drastic changes here so I want to thank you guys for the input about PC stuff.
Now is time to go.

@Killa: Please delete all your own posts because they are OffTopic, annoying and repetitive.

Here is official confirmation made by MS stuff guy:
The newer PCs that come with preinstalled Win10 have hardware and firmware with which the much older Win7 is not compatible.

Grow up, you are no more a little kid ... Now you can't expect form the others answers on every your question just because you ask or say so. I gave you direction, follow it, do your homework and learn something by yourself.

BTW: Where are these insults? ...or simply you have no idea what this word mean?
... and don't expect from me to give you on the plate Wiki link to its definition.

@ work i heard some1 saying that you can turn off the notifications by some trick. Still havent checked it out

Quotes from some forum (MS btw.):

I recently upgraded to Windows 10, and have found there is not option to stop automatic downloading of windows updates.

A quick Google search told me that there is basically no way to turn it off, which I cannot believe to be true, as it is surely an important feature to have.

My house unluckily has terrible copper wiring, and my speed is not always the best, and I also have to watch my quota (On/Off peak etc), so hopefully there is a way to turn it off.

So far Microsoft say that only Enterprise users are able to delay updates, but only up to 6 months. Windows 10 Pro users are also able to delay updates, but only for a few weeks, and only delay non-security updates. Windows 10 Home users don't get the chance to delay updates.

If enough users complain to Microsoft, they might change their plans.

A (MS Stuff):
Unfortunately, Windows updates cannot be turned off. However, you may select "notify to schedule restart" option which may help you.

A to above:
No, not helpful. Restarting should always be the user's option. But if updates are downloaded or not MUST also be the user's option. I DO NOT want updates downloaded when I am gaming, streaming content, etc.

Turn this HORRIBLE thing off.

A (many posts later):
There is a way to turn it off, although turning updates off is not recommended:
1.Open Start menu.
2.Search for Services.
3.Open Services, find Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS).
4.Right-click, select Properties, then change Startup Type to Disabled. Right click the service and select Stop.
5.Repeat for Windows Update service.

 When you decide you want updates, you should do the same steps, except that you want to change Startup Type back to Automatic.

It was very funny reading all these complains ... :D :D :D

.... you just made that up like most of your arguments.

Ouch, that hurt ..!
His posts have always the same context when something is beyond his comprehension - or simply: he don't understand something.

@Killa: Where is the problem?

I do not suspect that it was this:
.... Why even buy all that expensive hardware if you're not going to fully utilize it?
...because it's obvious, for these 10% - in two years it will be 40 or even 60.

As for this:
.... You guys might as well go for a 32-bit OS as well while you're on your "intentionally gimp my PC" crusade.
You see, Win10 right now is in beta stage (and it is envisaged that did not come off / remain in this stage forever) so is very unstable. Moreover, because for Microsoft it's a One Big Experiment it will be always buggy.
...But you're right, one day we all will have installed Win10 - buggy or not - because MS is forcing us to using it.
There is one big 'Conspiracy Theory' all over - e.g.
I think Microsoft and Intel are deliberately sabotaging new PC builds.

Win 7 would not run correctly on the new build. I could not get updates. The OS was activated. The system was running at hyper speed.  Svchost process for Windows Update was over 2GB. Fans spinning, high memory usage and high CPU usage.

Installed Win 10 Pro and the system works fine.

Microsoft is doing everything it can to move users to Win 10.
So as you see I'm just trying to be prepared for this event ...

Have fun being 3 DirectX versions behind.
Humor me ... Imagine, that even now 90% of 3D software is based on DirectX 9c - why, because the license for the newest D3DX versions are too expensive ... and bugged.

@Teddy: thanks for input - I've checked today some different forums and it seams that Kinston is the winner - despite fact, that Intel is about to deploy quit new technology for SSD disk (greater speed and capacity for the same price).

Thanks Koden, I thought about something similar ... my own HDD setup is:
- SSD 240GB for OS
- SSD 120GB for SWAP and OS stuff
- 4x 500GB for peronal data

... so for this ...
- SSD 240GB for OS
- 2x 500GB for OS SWAP, OS stuff and peronal data

... should be enough. But this is HDD configuration and my question was about 'which one?' Samsung, Intel, Ocz ..? Yeah I know, I could check the Net, but I did this once and regret my decision later. So this time, I ask consumers (you guys) directly: IYO which SSD/HDD mark is the best.

Thanks for quoting it so it will stay anyway - unless yours will be removed too ... :D

@Killa: True, but not entirely - in this case probably you have right, but if you will go much further, as I did four years ago it will be at the top much longer - even than four years.
At the time I've paid $3200 for each Xenon, MBR $1200, watercooling station something like $800, RAM don't remember exactly but there is 48GB so it wasn't cheap either - something arund $1500 ... and this is only small part. Point is, that even today (only changed GPUs - three times) 'my babe' is one of most powerful PCs on the world - at least in the first 100. Add to this satisfaction that I've made it myself. Never had problems with it ... super quiet.

Hmm ... Kind of strange shape, but I like it - will see ...

So WICKID, what you have? Don't be shy ... :D

I see some very interesting suggestions there ... Checked most of it but point is, case needs to be water cooling ready. There will be two: one for CPU and second for MBR and stuff - dimensions depend on the type of chassis.

- Lian-Li PC-18: nice looking, but made of aluminum - always better than plastic. $ 149
- Obsidian 450D: as above plus more flexible if it comes to place the cooling stuff. $ 119
- Obsidian 750D is more interesting, I like it. $ 179
- Carbide Quiet 600Q: I like a lot - has full steel exterior panels, much larger than the others, but more compact, dust filters!. $149 (and price fits below Killas overkill ... :))

Didn't found any Asus made cases, they made exclusively for their own PCs? Of curse there is always ROG, but have so ridiculous shapes ... and prices. So probably we have the winner:

Carbide Quiet 600Q: $149

I think, I will stick with Corsair - unless you guys have something better. I thought to change the memory for Corsair, but the modules with the same parameters as Kinston have worse timings - and more expensive.

- Hydro Series H110i 280mm extreme performance: $ 139
- Hydro Series H90 140mm: $109

There is H110i, H110i GT, H110i GTX - didn't see the difference ... Maybe you guys know some good watercooling stations? once you could buy watercooling with the external heat sink - no fans whatsoever - I have one of those. True is big, but completely silent. Coldn't find ...


Kingston Predator (PCI card): Capacities: 120GB, 960GB, Read: up to 1400MB/s, Write:  up to 1000MB/s, Features: Marvell 88SS9293 controller - 240GB €212,52
Kingston Savage: Capacities: 120GB, 960GB, Read: up to 560MB/s, Write:  up to 530MB/s, Features: Phison S10 controller - 240GB €112,56

As for HDD, I have no idea what nowadays is good ... any suggestions?

4x16 cost not that much: €467
4x4 cost: €125

... so why not? Anyway, I will save €33 in total. If you think otherwise, try to explain ...

...ah OK, You just do not like me ...

...i7, 16gb ram, and GTX 980Ti being "phenomenal".

Not so 'phenomenal', I FTM have 2xXenon + 48GB RAM + 2xGTX 980Ti - and waiting for new Xenon's based on Skylake and GTX990.

...and saying 'something solid' I mean 'unbreakable' - he likes to break things ... :)

As for the case:
NZXT Source 340
Simple design ... what you guys think?

It's for my son, he want something solid for gaming purpose. I've checked the Net today and come up with something like this - for now:

- Intel® Core™ i7-6700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.20 GHz)
- ROG Maximus VIII Formula
- Savage Memory Black - 64GB Kit*(4x16GB) - DDR4 2400MHz Intel XMP CL14 DIMM
- Blu-Ray BW-12B1ST

 - need the rest of it. Have no idea for reliable water cooling - there is so many - or chassis.

Any suggestions appreciated.
