No they are not. I have a V300 128GB which has a read/write speed of 240MB/s and 96MB/s according to CrystalDiskMark. My WD 1TB HDD has a read/write speed of 168MB/s and 170MB/s for about the same price. So yes, it is not worth it.

Thanks for the advice! I'll make sure to grab a ton of zip-ties and I'll try my best!

Yeah the prices on Black Friday literally made my jaw drop! I was thinking maybe I could wait for a couple more months but I couldn't help haha :D

Sorry to ask you this but could you maybe post some benchmarks? It's totally fine if you don't but I'm just kinda concerned since I really really don't want to return it if I don't have to. Thank you!

How's that SSD working for you? I just bought the same one for my pc and from the reviews I've read I'm pretty concerned about it underperforming since Kingston switched from synchronous NAND to asynchronous...

He mentioned in the intro that he needs to do machine learning and big data analysis. So that's probably what justifies for the quad channel RAM.

Just a suggestion - no matter how non-graphics dependent this build might be, I'd still recommend opting for a better GPU than the 5450 (alternatives that suit the purposes of this PC include the GT 730 GDDR5, etc.) simply because it's just better and more reliable! Some might disagree with me but that's just what I think and what I would've done if I had to build a computer like this one. Nice build nonetheless!

That CPU is great for the budget. However, the GPU certainly will not last you a few years. For that price point (I assume you're going for $900-$950) you should've at the very least gotten a GTX 760 or R9 280.

Yeah think the GTX 900 series will be out by then so might as well upgrade to one of these. Or, when you get enough cash, buy a second 760 4gb and sli these :)

Can you still return the 760 for a 770? If you can I'd strongly recommend that. Great build nonetheless! +1

I'm not saying for half the price. The total he paid for these 4 ramsticks is 52.99*4=$211.96, while he could've gotten this 2x8gb kit for $139.99, which is $211.96-$139.99=$71.97 less.

I might be wrong, but I think you got ripped off on the RAM part. You could've gotten a 16gb kit for around ~$50 lower.

Definitely... Crysis 3 and Metro 2033 are both extremely GPU-punishing games. Regarding the molecular modeling part, do you work in a lab or a medical institution or something like that? Just curious.

Np ;) Guess you could just wait for the GTX 880 to come out or get another 680 and do a SLI. However I believe that GTX 680 is already EOL so you'd probably have to buy one on ebay if you decide to do that.

Did you buy the 680 a long time ago? Because you could've gotten a 770 that outperforms it. Awesome build nonetheless! +1 all the way!

I'd say at least a R9 280X or GTX 770 if you favor NVIDIA to match that CPU you have (assuming you do a ton of overclocking). And dude r9 270 might be a good card for the budget but it's definitely not one of the best cards in today's world.

Get a liquid cooler like the H100i. If your CPU is under that heavy load that piece of **** cooler definitely won't suffice.

Philip you of course are a lot more of an expert than I am at building PCs in general but I personally think that the BitFenix Prodigy looks a LOT better than this case and that it should give you more clearance after installing the H100i. Just my personal opinion :)

Even if that's the case I still think he should've sold the 7790 and get a 770 or 280x because the 7790 is like a 4 years old card if I'm not mistaken.

Considering their performance compared to the price of this build, yes they are pieces of junk.

Why that crossfire setup!? For that $300 you could've gotten a 770 or a R9 280X which are both WAAAAAY nicer cards than these 2 pieces of junk!
