Hey, I'm building a gaming computer on a budget and I was wondering if buying an SSD i actually worth it. Right now I have purchased a Samsung Spinpoint F3 ( ) and I was wondering how much faster the SSD would be, and if it would be necessary for me to by one. Also, if I stick with the Samsung Spinpoint, use it as my OS, and then also use it for primary storage, will it slow it down?

First... No hard drive will match the speed of a SSD (The new 600GB Velicoraptor is the closest). If you are wanting speed, a SSD is your best option.

Second... If you are wanting a fast all around drive with capacity, you can't go wrong with the Samsung Spinpoint F3 (I have one, along with a SSD). I would recommend it to anyone.

So the bottom line, If you want pure speed, SSD... If you want an overall fast drive, Samsung is the way to go!! :)
