Is it time for another hard drive or soild state drive? I have 40GB of space left on this PC and it has a 6 year old Seagate Barracuda. This is the family pc, and everyone thinks its fine for the next... get ready... 5 years! Really? Maybe if I get some people to say we do on here, it may change their minds. So, is it time for an upgrade?

Time... YES! if you got $300(at least since it's a family PC) get a 200GB+ SSD, if you got less then $200 just get a $100 HDD... Also choose some good SSD like Intel Samsung Corsair Kingston crucial(i would pick on of these five and Crucial most reliable)

You can find a Samsung 840 series 120gb for $77 right now. It's an easy upgrade to speed. Also if you need more mass storage couple that with another 500gb hdd ($60 - $70). Problem solved.
