A friend of mine is going to build a new computer. I helped him to choose the components, this is what we choose:
Processor: Intel Core i5 2500k
Motherboard: Asrock P67 Extreme4
RAM: Corsair XMS CMX4GX3M2A1600C9
PSU: XFX Pro (black edition in America) 750 watt
DVD writer: Sony Optiarc AD-7260S
CPU fan: Scythe Mugen 2
HDD Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ, 1TB
Screen: Iiyama ProLite E2710HDSD-B1 (an 27 inch monitor, my friend likes a low pixel density (not sure why) so we have choosen a large monitor)
The case, OS, mouse and keyboard are already available.
Now my question is: my friend wants a new GPU and an SSD. But he doesn't has money for both right now so we have two options now:
Option 1: Buying a new GPU (probably an AMD radeon 6950 which can be flashed to a Radeon HD 6970) and buying the SSD later.
Option 2: Buying an SSD (OCZ Vertex2 3,5" 120 GB) and using the GPU from his previous computer (an ATI Radeon HD 4850 x2) and buying the new GPU later
Which option would you recommand? and why?
