Buy a $20 SATA to USB cable and test the drive out on a computer you know is working.

I copied you guys, SSD (total ripoff) and all. All because of 3 SWTOR bg's that Republic fails in. I feel like a real genius.

After I got this one I had to get diff ram too, old ram sticks were blue, totally clashed with the red. so I got the same kind in black,lol

If you want you can stick 3 vid cards on this mobo and oc/tweak it remotely with your iPad,lol

Edit. That board, 16gigs of ram, an i7 CPU, and a gtx 580/590 - your good to go :wink:

All i can say is i am jealous. If i cant get the freebie working with some southern engineering then the only other choice i have is to find some grandmaw strap an ankle bomb to her,and get her to make a with drawl at the local bank.
JUST KIDDING. Weap that is a beastly build alot of room for upgrade. that is what i am aiming for in the future to get a really roomy case nice mobo that will last, a heafty psu and then all i have to do is upgrade the cpu and the video card and ram when they become obsolete.

A GTX 560 Ti will run swtor. For1k you can build a comp that will run any game at reasonable settings. I wouldn't get that bundle you linked when you can just pick better parts individually for gaming at around the same price or cheaper. I'm no expert though.

Yea I should of been a little bit patient before i posted that link. I have been doing some research and I really like The MOBO and CPU AND PSU you have. That would last me for a while if I had the money, But this gives me a great starting point though.
Here are a couple of links that I hope will help clear the mud so to speak for me that is. I get the basics of computer building , but i'am not down and nerdy with it like weap is( Him and his W.O.R.P building project.)
