It's a clever idea, but I'm leery at the quality of implementation. Though I suppose a 720p screen is fine when you can only steadily output 720p.

This is mostly just my gaming/living room rig (who says a Corsair c500 can't be an HTPC?), though my games are on on other drives.

However, I have been doing more video editing/rendering lately. ...

I see good 120 gig drives go on sale all the time for around that price (in Canadian dollars). Stuff from Corsair, ADATA, Sandisk, and even occasionally Samsung. Just keep an eye out and get a deal...

Looking to upgrade my boot drive, as I've got this m.2 slot looking so empty and lonely.

Good advice, all around.

I think I'm going to keep it around. I don't think I'd get that much money for it, given its age and its worth even less given its display output issues (it runs stable,...

Other than with AMD APUs, I haven't noticed a difference OCing from 1600mhz to 2400mhz. I haven't even seen a difference in benchmarks or 7zip.

The Celeron seems to be a bit of a better buy. It benches slightly higher, and the LGA 1150 chipset will leave a lot more room for growth than AM1 if he needs some more gumption in the future.

I agree that a dedicated raid controller would be ideal, but unfortunately, that's not in my budget right now.

I'm not super worried about data loss; I make pretty frequent backups, and if the...

While I concede that the 970 strix is a very handsome looking slice of ham, I'd also recommend holding off until the rx480 comes out. Even if you want to go with the 970, which looks to be a lot less...
