Absolutely. The advantage is worth the extra cost IMO. I just got a Samsung 840 120GB SSD. I couldnt be happier with the performance. The difference between SSD and HDD is night and day. Plus I got the 840 for under $100. You might not need 120-128GB but if you canget it for a good price you might as well. You could even install a few games on there. I wouldnt go smaller than that though. The smaller and cheaper the SSD usually the slower the read/write speeds.
