YOU DON'T HAVE AN SSD!?!??!? :shock:
That's the most important thing ever :) It's probably the only one single thing that you'll notice immediately once you put it in your PC - of course also more RAM, and a better videocard, but it will change how windows load, application response, etc.
I even put an SSD on my PS4, since couldn't stand the superslow loading times :lol:

Honestly, if I do get a SSD, I intend on using it just for Windows 10.

Booting up in 10s instead of 45s is good :)

I'm contemplating whether I should get extra RAM (currently have 8gb)or a SSD.
I recommend getting extra RAM, but only if your motherboard can use it.
Why? I like big ones, that's why.

I think I will go for RAM then. One of the games I have, The Whispered World, requires 16 GB, or least that's what it says on box of the retail version.

Anyways, with much difficulty, I finally built my pc. Now, I see why Jack hasn't built a PC in a while. So many things can go wrong. Sadly, my old pc"( wouldn't work anymore before I could transfer some files. :(
