Hi , i've upgraded my PC about a year ago.I've changed mobo , cpu , ram , gfx card , psu , but the HDD.
The HDD is about 4-yr-old and it takes long just to boot windows.I was thinking about buying an SSD.
Is it worth it? If yes , what kind of SSD should i be looking for?

Some people advise going for the fastest you can afford, I advise going for the biggest you can afford. I would advise going with an OCZ Agility 256 Gb and saving your important stuff on the HDD. They generally cost less than most, offer good performance, and are fairly reliable. By storing important things on the HDD you'll save yourself grief if anything goes wrong.

You'd be surprised how fast they fill up.

Buy 60gb or 120gb ssd is enough for os and applications above 120gb is waste of money.for backup ur files buy a 2tb or 3tb hdd its cost lesser than ssds.

I'd only need the SSD for the OS+1 or 2 games.

Some batches have been know to flake out suddenly, plus any updates to the drive erase everything. I say better safe than sorry.

Some thing I said. Take the capacity you think you need and triple it.
