It`s actually a pretty well performing SSD overall for what it cost at the time. Sold as 120Gb, but you obvsiously never get what they claim. Use it as the boot drive. Want to get at least another 16gb of ram because muh quad channel, possibly more for ram caching. Though 16gb would likely be enough..Need a case, but can`t decide on one. Oh, and my GPU cost as much as my CPU+Motherboard combined. Amazingly low cost system for the performance.

Zotac also tend to make some of the highest clocked cards you can buy when they feel like it. Their AMP! lineup for maxwell (haven't looekd at pascal) often have higher clocks than anyone else. Their top AMP! 970 for example is as fast as a 980.

I want to get a larger SSD. I thought I'd be OK with the small SSD because I don't usually keep a bunch of games installed at one time, but I'm pretty much out of space.

Even their 10-series GPUs have some of the highest core clock speed out of the competition. The only two higher clicked cards are by Galax and Gigabyte. And Gigabyte's is $100 more than the AMP! Extreme.

Thanks for the help, just one more question on looking up the specs of my motherboard

https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/M5A78LMUSB3/specifications/

I have:
>1 x PCIe x16
>1 x PCIe x1
>2 x PCI

The cards says:
>PCIe 3.0 (x16)

I am unsure how to get more detailed information, are my slots acceptable? I don't know how to tell if they are "3.0"

So many AMD + ATI combos ITT. Here's mine.
I wouldn't want to change a thing, but if you disagree be my guest.

Unless M$ infiltrated multiple independent routers to never display their traffic I'd say it works.

the 290X has 1 DP 1.2 and 1 HDMI 1.4, which means it cannot do 2 4K screens at 60Hz (which is why one of mine is running at 30Hz)

The 480 doesn't have this issue
