comment Windows 8.1 Black Screen
yep this was part of the problem. I figured it out, there are mixed drivers for the graphics card. Windows wants to install its own while I have the vendor graphics drivers...they both clash and boom problem. All i have to do is uninstall window's graphics drivers, install the vendors and then do a windows update (this time it won't bother with the graphics card since it sees there's already a driver for it) and then all is good

when you said go into BIOS, would I go into the boot settings and set the SSD to master drive or something?

@techie007 so would the adapter I linked above from amazon be good enough to stream video without any lag? Btw, I was going to get an amazon 4-port USB 3.0 hub to go along with my purchase.

ah that is some good information. What does office productivity include? I'm not too worried about games, what about movies played from the HD and other videos streams (youtube, game streams, netflix)?

comment RAM Quantity vs Speed
Oh I see, so you get the optimal speed when you only have 2 modules since it'll be 1 per channel. But then you want to maximize the performance of each module by getting the largest memory (which is 8GB). Thus 2 8GB modules is the best choice for a 4 memory slotted motherboard. Did I understand the line of thinking correctly?

so how exactly will that play out for me if I connected 1 monitor to the onboard and 2 to the nvidia? Any serious lags, bugs, glitches?
