Hey, I was wondering how much faster a SSD would go than a HDD ( The one I have picked out is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) and if it's actually worth buying an SSD. Also, if I stick with the HDD ans use it as my OS and then also use it as my main storage component would it slow it down at all?
i personally think is worth while for a ssd if you have the money for it..but you will still need to buy a HDD with that as they are not really big enough for storage. I would put OS and some main programs into the SSD and keep other stuff in HDD.
you will see a noticable load speed into windows and running the programs in SSD. FOr me it was worth it.
the two brands i would go for with SSD would be intel or OCZ but intel has the best one and the one that i got is the x25m 80g...OCZ has really good reviews with the vertex and the newer one is the agility.
somebody in here might tell you to wait till the end of this year to get your SSD b/c there are plans of bigger versions coming out and maybe intel will release the new model but depends on your needs.
Hmmm alright. So I would be fine just using the Samsung Spinpoint f3 1 TB model for now, and then maybe later this year when they release newer ones and the price of the older ones go down, or if there just happens to be a very good deal on one, I could always pick one up and switch it as my main OS and mostly played games storage device correct?
