Thanks for the answers. I guess I was hoping that running my programs from a separate disk even if it wasn't an SSD would give some spotted improvement being that they would have there own disk to read/write and not have to share one with the OS while it's reading/writing.
Just the OS and any programs installed on the SSD wil be "snappy". You would probably be better off getting two WD Caviar Black 1TB drives and running a Raid 0 setup. Not near as snappy as an SSD, but you will notice a definite improvement.
I was actually planning on getting a second drive, but if I may ask how will raid 0 effect the speed of the drives? I'm asking how the configuration is going to improve the physical speed?
