Waiting for PCI Express flash storage to become the standard since it's around 3x faster than an SSD.

not until the price/capacity ratio becomes more reasonable.. 1TB of ssd space is still an absurd amount of money


Yep. Once I can get a 1TB SSD for about 150 or less I'll get one then.


120/128gb ssd will eventually fade out with 256gb taking it's place at the same price point, i can see this happening next year

1TB ssd at $150 of less wont happen in many years, it's retailing at $700


Yeah I know. I have no use for an SSD anyways. Me having one will not really benefit me. I rather put that money on more ram honestly.


you'll get more out of a modern ssd than even the fastest ram available today

someone with a 128gb 840 pro and 8gb ddr3 1333mhz will have a faster rig than a 1tb 7200rpm hdd and 32gb ddr3 2000+mhz


Not for me. YOu're looking at a person who always leaves his computer and it might get restarted maybe once a week. I don' have any games with INSANE load times anyways. So as I say again I rather have the RAM as an SSD will not really benefit me.

i'm surprised this many people don't have an ssd..even for $100 this is the best investment you can buy for you pc

all you need is a 128/256 dedicated to windows and programs..that's it


my pc boots up in 10 seconds

I grabbed my two 830's for 80 and 90 and I can't be more happy with them. I'm running them in raid and it's awesome.

So does mine, on a 7200 rpm drive. God bless optimized SystemD booting. 256GB might be big enough to share between my two main OSes but that'd be about it.

Yeah even with a 7,200 rpm drive it still takes over a minute or so to fully boot depending on how much junk you have in startup. I've seen it take up to 5 minutes before on some people's computers.

The SystemD should've been a giant clue that I don't give a **** about Windows.
