So yeah I would like to know your take on this. I was thinking about getting 150gb velocity raptor for $200 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
or I could get the SSD hd....I know they are more expensive but will I see big improvement with ssd vs. velocity raptor? I found this deal:

Patriot 32gb ssd for $150-$50 mail in rabate.

So what you guys think?

Just to recap I have 500gb data drive so I just want os drive.

I would avoid SSD's that are available today. Excepting the new offerings from Intel. They are priced at $600 which is too much for me.

You might want to read this anandtech article on ssd http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid-state_drive performance:

The conclusion is that JMicron JMF602 based MLC SSD's are unacceptable because of random write issues.

I love my velociraptor. It DOES make a difference. If you want the best today, and don't mind the price, get it.
