    Eh, not really. The MX200 is the same exact hardware as the MX100, simply with SLC caching enabled. The BX100 uses a completely different controller.

    It's not. It's a solid SSD.


    The MX100 is not out of date, the BX100 is a slightly slower version of the MX100 while there's now an MX200 that is slightly faster. Depending on the pricing, the...

    The Crucial MX100 is a better choice than the Samsung 840 Evo. It's faster, twice the capacity for only a little more money, and does not suffer from the 840 Evo bug that Samsung is attempting to...

    It's a value for money list, that's why. They pick the Sandisk Extreme Pro over the Samsung 850 Pro because it's cheaper with comparable performance.

    Only the second one posted any links, so I think it's just coincidence. Maybe spurred by the forum's post limits intended to curb spambots.

    I don't think there's a clear answer to that question. Updating the firmware does come with a small risk of bricking the drive; if something goes seriously wrong while updating, the drive can be left...

    The Nvidia equivalent to the R9 280X is the GTX 770, which is being phased out. You may or may not be able to find that at a reasonable price. The GTX 960 is a newer, somewhat slower card.

    Careful about listening to the resident Nvidia fanboy.

    Anyway, the 280X is not a competitor to the GTX 970 - AMDs high-end cards are the R9 290 and 290X. The 290X beats the 970 at high...

    The 0.5GB is so slow that once it's actively used to any significant degree, it will ruin performance. Just like when you run out of VRAM entirely and it has to use system RAM instead. Crash and...

    An R9 290. The GTX 970 is a little faster but only has 3.5GB VRAM effectively, so it's not really worth the premium over an R9 290. Though I guess it depends on local pricing.

    It's the best configuration so far. In the short term, something like an R9 280 with a Core i3 would still generally perform better, but with the Core i5 you at least have a platform that will allow...

    A Core i3 would be a little better, but the FX-6300 is fine. If you could get a Core i3 and a cheaper motherboard, that could free up some money for a better graphics card. And the graphics card is...

    Adding a second GPU is pretty much required if you want to play demanding games at 4K. And it's a much better solution than wasting your money on a GTX Titan X. But it's really only viable at the...

    Number 2 is best for gaming since it has a significantly more powerful graphics card than either of the other systems. I'm not comfortable with the bad power supplies in any of the three systems...

    It's a little larger than I would have expected, but still SSD-friendly.

    The beta is less than 4GB on disk.

    Passively cooled graphics cards still require airflow, it just comes from case fans instead of fans on the card. That isn't necessarily a quieter solution overall.

    It doesn't seem to have that info in Windows though, which is where it would be useful for someone considering the change.

    Command line interfaces usually have a very strict syntax, and it's often quite unintuitive (until you invest effort in learning the system, but people don't want to do that). So there's a pretty big...

    Ubuntu is based on Debian anyway, so it's not like it's some huge difference. Linux Mint comes in both a Debian-based version and an Ubuntu-based version.
