I would add an SSD for the boot drive, and use the purple HD for program/data storage.

I would not use purple for data either, purples are designed for sequential read/write (video surveillance systems - WD Purple Surveillance Storage).

Agreed with Mellon Head an SSD is the best thing you can do (you won't regret a bit).

For data drive get a WD Black if you can afford (5 year warranty and good performance) or a Blue (good performance but 1TB max).

To check RAM - RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Good point on the purple. I had forgotten that they are for surveillance systems.

OP: Get a black or blue drive instead, Like GokAy says.

Hey there jkent5223,

Here are my two cents on this:
You computer is pretty optimized for gaming. I would consider a better GPU for better performance in games as this one might not handle heavier ones on better resolution.
As the guys explained, WD Purple is a surveillance-class drive and is not the most appropriate choice for a storage drive for a regular desktop. I would consider a SSD as a boot drive for the OS and most demanding applications/games and a regular drive such as WD Blue/WD Green for secondary storage. Here are links for more info on these drives:

I don't suggest greens for anything other than backup purposes. Blues would be nice but why isn't WD producing them beyond 1 TB?

Hi,
I'd look into a different liquid cooler Corsair has some good ones,
Also I would get Corsair ram

Is this the board and cpu you got ?

WD Blue is designed for everyday usage, simple computing and not so demanding workloads. Pretty much regular users if such type rarely need capacities over 1TB. For the more advanced users there's WD Black and WD Green - one for the performance-oriented builds that have heavier workloads, longer operations and demand for more performance storage and one for massive storage spaces for data that doesn't need fast access times and higher transfer speeds.
