I'll be ordering the MSI GS75 Stealth 10SGS-027 and am debating doing a custom build vs. just going with the stock options. One of the sites MSI sends me to, is Xotic PC. I like the idea of being able to customize to fit my needs, but are these upgrades really worth it? In particular...
- Dead Pixel Warranty
- Professional Monitor Calibration
- Hard Drive Slot 1 (and slot 2) - Is the XPC, Samsung 970 or Seagate Firecuda any better than the default hard drive that comes with the PC?
- Thermal Cooling - I'm not sure what IC Diamond or Thermal Grizzly Compound are and do they really help performance?
- Cooling and Overclocking - Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads / Redline Boost™ Overclock My Graphics Card. Again, not sure what these do, or if they improve performance.
