    Hopefully I dont regret my purchases! Until now, I had 2 x Vertex 2 50+60 gb in RAID0 and 2 x 1 TB Seagate 7200.12

    Now I'm adding an Intel 520 240gb and a 2TB Seagate. I'm debating about stopping the RAIDs and just use them as normal drives. I got the SSD at 300$, did I overpay?

    I also got the K60 mechanical to test it against my TT mechanical. Hopefully its more comfortable for gaming

    I also got an H60 because it was super cheap... but my next build needs to be reliable, I ain't putting cheap water, only air, so its a backup? (nvm oos, so didnt get it)

    I just blew 500$ 470$ that I shouldn't have... so I wanted to share :D If anyone wants benches of some kind, lmk

    That is a nice setup, I have a similar setup, but with a 750gb HDD for my storage..

    You got a pretty good deal on that Intel SSD for sure. The speed will be about the same as when you had those Vertex SSDs + or - some.

    Don't know much about Corsair's cooling solutions, but I heard they are pretty good. But for me, it's air...I like it that way :)

    And last but not least...mechanical keyboards are the way to go ;)

    Have fun with that build

    You seem to make alot of purchases you don't need, then ask about them after the fact. Strange way to go about it.

    thanks :D

    yep :eek: I did a bit of research, was satisfied with it and bought it. It was something I WANTED to do as I upgraded everything but my PSU and HDDs, and my PSU I love, so I wanted to get new storage. Saw somewhat of a good deal on the K60 keyboard and on the 2TB seagate so I decided to get an SSD as well. Plus since its not shipped, I can always cancel lol
