I have just ordered a i7 950 6gb ram HD5850 and i was thinking should i put a SSD in it?
I had a look on ebay and i can get a OCZ Vertex 2 60G SSD for $200 (AUS). Is it money well spent? is it something i should think about later or should i just splash out now before i get windows installed?
Also i have a SATA 3 mother board ASrock Extreme 3 i think.
TRIM? eh. cant really afford more then $200 so its 60gb or nothing. Do you know what kind of performance improvements i would see? will they be noticable improvements or just a second here and and second there kinda thing.
Anything which involves reading or tranfering data from your hdd will be improved significantly.
Those improvements can be seen during :
2. Starting a program
3. Game loading
And, I mean SIGNIFICANT for example :
I can feel that my finger is still in the middle of second push of the left click button by calling firefox, but firefox has already started and already on screen.
