Oh that's what you were concerned about? Speed? Lol. Yeah I'm upgrading to SSDs ASAP lol. However, remember that you & I are on 2 different levels. The MOST data savvy programs I run are Fruity Loops & light gaming. This machine alone can handle CoD, GTA, Saints Row 3, etc...But, even those rely on this Nvidia card. The drive is fast enough for my tasks. My major concern is internet speed but, that's a different fight for a different day. I'm about to start the installation process. I'll keep posting via mobile.
