Thanks all for the great response.
What's all the business about an SSD? How would it really help me out, and which one should I get?
An SSD is a Solid State Drive. It is like a very small, VERY fast hard drive. They are expensive though, but right now, so are hard drives. Basically, an SSD will give you a lot of everyday work performance, load games quicker, but it won't give you any more FPS in games. In the odd situation it does somehow give more FPS, it wont be much.
