    That's a nice configuration and it will be great for gaming. And yes, if you install Windows on SSD it will be much faster in every aspect. Booting, reading and writing speeds are all enhanced greatly. You can feel the improvement immediately.

    Everything is good, but get the 7970's instead of the 675's. You will get twice the performance for 70 dollars less. Also, if your only playing video games, 8 gigs of ram is way more than enough.
