Hi,
 
I want to upgrade my system's storage and RAM.
Here is the link to my system config detail : https://ibb.co/gey0dk
I am looking to add a 2 tb 7200 or more RPM hdd in the system as the current 1 TB hdd is running out of space. Currently i have 2 X 4 GB RAM and i want to boost it to 16 gb which is the max capacity of the motherboard. I need to run virtual box , in order to run linux in it.
 
Is it advisable to add a SSD hdd in the current system config?
 
There is a issue with my graphic card (i think) because when i increase the monitors brightness the screen looks weird and when i decrease its brightness, the content on screen looks better. Is it the issue of Graphic card or monitor?
 
 
Please suggest all the options.
 
Thanks,
 
Sanny.

1 vote for Western Digital blacks from me.

im interested to hear more opinions too. :)

 

SSD's for operating files will always help your load times regardless of your other system configs.  and all storage drives can be kept long term......

 

personally for my needs a 500gb ssd is sufficient.  some find 256GB fine.  but SSD's will theoretically last longer if they have a bit of spare space.  at least this is what I have read.
