debating between a SDD or Just buy a Normal Sata II drive the problem is I would like to buy a SSD but I am afraid to invest the money since i have heard SSD's have a low Endurance burn out pretty quickly I need some advice on the matter I could easily buy a 1tb Standard drive for around 60 or invest a little more for a 120 gig SSD now even tho I could get the 1tb I really care about performance which turns me to SSD faster game loading boot up ect... so what should I do I need advice from someone who really knows there stuff only thanks

Going solid state has changed my life, but if theres a limited amount of programs you really need the speed for, like bf3 or something maybe you can spend less an get a bigger drive for mass storage and use the left over for ram and set up a ram disk c: 550 mbs ssd or 10 gbs ramdisk? but it would take a lot of ram to make space for the bigger apps so getting the SSD seems like a good middleground

Once you go SSD you never go back. Yes get one!

You have 'heard' incorrectly.

"Durability The short answer is I wouldn’t worry about it."

"Even when you push an SSD to the max by downloading lots of movies everyday up to an average of 30 GiB per day, the SSD will still last you 24 years"

" If you write 50GB on the drive daily, the total number of days the drive will last before becoming unreliable is: (120 x 3,000)/50 = 7,200 days, which is about 20 years."
