Intel x25-v can be found for under 100$ just keep an eye out, get 2 for raid 0 if you can afford it! Forget about what they will do for your wei hdd score, ssd is easily the best upgrade you can make as far as a performance boost you will actually notice. You'll never go back to mechanical drives for the OS.

Do you mean OC'd via BIOS or something else? Whenever I tried setting a clock via BIOS it either became unstable or didn't improve the scores one bit.

well at first it was overclocked with ASUS GPU NOS software (under XP x64).
when i upgraded to 7 i decided not to use NOS software and instead overclocked it in BIOS.

works rock solid @ 725mhz for little over a month now (games, benchmarks etc). no glitches no crashes. stock cooling aka heatsink.

@ 750 display starts to turn off so i lowered OC a little bit and it works like a charm.

Hmm I had no problems with 750, though I saw no improvement. Will look into it further, thanks.

Did you leave the memory size (how much RAM it uses) set to Auto?

Buying what you want is even better
I don't differentiate between needs and wants when it comes to tech gear (hence need being in "")

I've just refreshed my score, I'll never get a good one because I don't have a dedicated graphics card, just the built in chip, and I'm not a gamer so having a low score there isn't something that worries me.

Finally installed my 980x, still have much to do so just threw it together quickly to make sure it wasn't doa. This is 980x stock+5870 stock, hd is a spare x25-v. This should be a good example for people wishing to go the ssd route, x25-v can be found for under 100$ and gets you instant 7.3. Nevermind the number though you actually notice the upgrade, ssds give a 'snappy' feeling that's pretty awesome.

Anyway if you saw my other score my only weekness was processor, a stock 980x gives you 7.8. True 7.9 will wind up much easier than I thought. Then I can stop messing with this silly thing.
