Default Bottleneck in upcoming build?


I'm planning on upgrading the internals on my desktop. I'm not a gamer, but will be using it for GNS3, VM's, Blue Iris, etc.

Samsung 840 128GB SSD

Core i3-3220 3.3Ghz 3MB cache


Kingston 2x4GB DDR3 1600

What would be the bottleneck(s) for this build?

OP, I take it you're trying to make it work within a budget?
