    Just a thought to keep in mind. Modern games are loading a ton of assets. A future upgrade to consider would be a 256Gb or larger SSD to be used as a games drive. This will allow for much quicker loads.

    On Battlefield 4 for instance loading from a SSD reduces the map change by quite a considerable amount (about 2 - 3 minutes)

    thats definitely something ive considered which is why i got one in the first place but my budget at the moment didnt allow for a much larger one so for now im making due but when i am able i definitely plan to upgrade to a larger SSD.
