Will I be better off getting a 1tb seagate hybrid drive for £60 or buying a 32gb sandisk ssd cache and also a 500gb hdd?

If the latter(a more complex and irritating to maintain setup) what kind of gains are we looking at? I want fast boot times and fast steam big picture, firefox etc.

I dont need huge capacity so 550gb or even 320gb hdd is not a problem.

Finally, would say a 320gb momentus xt hybrid AND an ssd cache be better than ssd cache+HDD?

Please give reasons :)

ok a hybrid and a ssd cache will be fast but what would be faster is a ssd 32gb and a 500gb hard drive or you can do the 320gb hyrbid drive and a ssd 32gb

do you mean use the 32gb ssd as a cache or just as a seperate drive?
