I like my current Corsair Vengance mouse, so I figured let's get the better one, and the mouse feels good in the hand, I'd keep it but I've done messed it up from to many RAGE MOUSE SLAMS 

also this build is atm conjeture, chances are what I have may change a little when I go to buy everything, 
You want me to make up a $1000 build for you? I don't mind, plus, I'm really good at budget managing.

ehh no, I'd like to make my own Build :3 as I have preferances. I like Gigabyte Mobos, I prefer Intel over amd, I like to keep up to date with my Cpus but in this next build I'm willing to branch out into older cpus

 

I prefer Sapphire Gpus, I've had three now all of them have been great,

 

ofc my budget isn't hard set atm, and when the time comes in the fall for me to build I may find some super duper deals and save a TON of cash, pcPartpicker had my build as low asl like $1300 about 2 weeks ago... shame on me for missing that chance to get at least something

 

Non the less, Bowei and Hybrid helped me make my first build, so I'd prefer to work with all of you, as opposed to having some one do a build for me, after all it's my computer. I'd like the joy of knowing I had a hand in picking what was inside of it, plus when and if the crap hits the fan, I've only got my self to be mad at

 

speaking of which, I had my cpu pushed to x39 multiplier, which on stock voltages was unstable :/. Lowered it to 38 and I've had much more stability over the last 3 days, let's see if it can countinue.

What's in your planned build?

I'm just very used to the Gigabyte Mobo settings, it's nice for OCn and what not.

I've been reading that some Mac's have issues utilizing the Samsung EVO 840 properly due to its controller.

 

I'm getting only 200MB/s by 250MB/s (read) as opposed to the 400MB/s I could

 

I'll be trying out Windows installation tmmrw to see if that will spice things up

 

Make sure to pick up Trim Enabler. It's free and helps greatly. There's a Pro version for $10, but I'm just using the basic one.

Already did it :D

 

I went through my system settings and noted TRIM was not enabled this morning so bada boom, and its on.

 

Sad that my SSD is limited heavilly by my chipset :(

 

I average 180-250MB/s read and write with it. Which is pretty similar results to what SATA 2 limitations of SATA3 SSD's are doing :(

Boo STAT 2. But hey, it's still better than a platter drive.

My old MBP HDD (5400rpm) did about 30MB/s......WAYYY better :D

tbh i think that IO and teeny tiny read/write speed are more important that huge file read and writes.  i mean shifting 500MB/s is cool and usefull if your moving massive files all the time but how often are you doing that.

 

its like a car that can go insanely fast but corners like a waterbed.

So it's like almost every single American-designed sports car?

well the 840 should be speedy at both so its more like a speed limited F1 car.  sure it cant go 200mph now but its still fast and corners superbly.

 

as for american cars and their sofa on wheels like properties are not for the likes of i to comment on ;-)

So you're telling me that e-peeen is worth nothing and that writting 3GB files in benchmarks isn't worth anything?

 

lol but yeah, it is a good test to see the entire drive's ability though.

The 840 is fast enough sure.

 

It's really fast right now in Matlab and everything

yeah what mean is not getting above 250MB/s doesnt really matter, the IO and small readwrites should be epicly superior to your old hdd.  they are what make ssds feel incredibly snappy in operation.
