OK, here is the deal i just picked up was on sale at local shop a i7 930 cpu for 200$ in retail box i couldn't pass it down so now i got to build the system motherboard i have picked out is a asus p6x58d-e board with g. skill memory 6 gig @ 1600 9 9 9 24 a western digital caviar black sata 6.0 1tb and a thermaltake A90 case question is i can get a 32 gig ssd drive cheap like as in 40$ was thinking about adding it to my order is it worth for me to just install the os on the ssd and everything else on the normal hdd?

hmm yes this one is only going to cost me 40$ its in a combo deal . with one of my other items in the shopping cart. the question i have is. is it worth me paying out the extra 40$ for the small 32gig ssd drive or just save the 40$? or just install the os on the ssd drive and everything else on the sata drive?

what kind of ssd is that? i think with its price that would be a terrible ssd. save that 40$ and wait till the ssd's price go down. they still are expensve right now. only if you really need ssd for speed. that's the time you should really buy it. but right now. it cost to much. and with that 40$ that would be not realiable
