    Upgrade to Radeon HD 7850 from GTX 550 Ti

    Actually, the 7850 should be nearly 80% faster than the 550 ti. You don't subtract the percentages, you divide them... Anyways, it might be one of those AMD frame latency issues.

    Which SSD?

    The Neutron GTX 240GB is a pretty good deal, but if it goes back up in price, go for the Samsung 840 250GB. The Neutron GTX (the GTX is important) is faster, but has a little less space. They will both fare better with incompressible data than Sandforce drives, and they should have slightly...

    Need advice on building a system for rendering

    it is not good for $1000 to $1400 build. maybe for a $600 budget rendering pc, because these apus are as strong as i3s. This build will have a xeon which is twice as powerful. a radeon 7850 is several times more powerful than a 7660d.
