I am considering upgrading my hard disk rpm to 10k/higher or go for SSD (budget permitting) as an option to improve my set up CFD computing time. I am mainly running FDS (NIST) which is a Fortran based CFD code in dual xeon set up with a 7200rpm HDD.
Will the hard disk speed upgrade worthwhile to reduce the CFD run time?

thanks for the input. The flow diagram is awesome. I think i only occupy the following:-
1. Flow condition/parameters.
2. CFD solver.
3. Computing resources.
All done on a single desktop.
I think given my limited understanding of the matter, i will just stick to HDD.
