And sometimes human interaction helps. We can all say what our opinion of what is best, but the bottom line is you get more enjoyment when you control your system. I personally didn't build my computer just to use the keyboard and mouse, this is my toy and I will tweak and play with it.

Thanks everyone, i would love an SSD i just have better things to spend money on currently thats why i was avoiding it for now.

What is IOPS?
I've been checking out Intel as they seem to have the highest quality and least fail rate or am i wrong?

1. IOPS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOPS

2. Yes, Intel is good quality but many others are good quality too.

I have just noticed something in the Resource Monitor that you told me to open, on my works PC which has just 4GB RAM.

I have just a total of 800MB free after waiting for boot to finish. However i have Hardware Reserved using 324MB.

And if i right click Computer select Properties and look at my RAM, it shows 4.00GB (3.68GB Usable).

All my other PC's i built have never said a usable amount. Is that something wrong?

Along side that, as my memory on this PC seems to go to 0 free sometimes. I assume that this will increase the amount of Page Filing too. While the PC feels quick still atm. Would i be recommended to install some extra RAM? Or wouldnt it matter.
