No he shouldn't... An SSD is NOT a necessity.


I beg to differ. I can't stand even booting a PC up without an SSD anymore. If it takes longer than 10-13 seconds I get frustrated with it.

I'm sorry, but that's sad.

I don't need an SSD, and I have no problem waiting an extra 20 seconds because I get an HDD instead of an SSD. I remember when 3-5 minutes was a good start-up time, and 14k modems.

And professional due to it's XP program backwards compatibility out of the box. I have tons of older software/games that it will come in handy for.


Ok, I see. I wouldn't expect most games to work in XP Mode, but it can be helpful for other non-gaming software. Ultimately it doesn't do much that a regular Windows XP virtual machine would do -- after all it is just a regular Windows XP virtual machine -- but it is basically a free XP license (other than the fact that Win 7 Pro costs $40 more than Home Premium).
You might be surprised by the stuff that will run fine in Windows 7 without the need for XP Mode, though.

I have to disagree with ThePCElitist and you both. First, you should not get an SSD (disagreeing with ThePCElitist). The reason is because it's NOT sad that he can't stand booting a PC up without an SSD anymore... it's perfectly natural (disagreeing with you).

Once you get an SSD, you'll realize it was the PC upgrade you've always wanted. It's better than upgrading from a Core 2 Duo to the current gen. Better than going from 2GB of RAM to 16GB of RAM. It will forever shift your expectations for computers, ruining any computer without an SSD for you forever. You'll notice every little pause that you used to put up with before. Right now, you're unaware, but once you've experienced an SSD, for the brief moments pauses happen on every other computer, you'll wonder "Oh crap, did it just crash?"

Seriously, knowing what I know now, if I didn't have an SSD and I had a choice of doubling my processor power or getting an SSD, it wouldn't even take a moment to decide for an SSD.

Yea TC I'd heavily recommend getting an SSD as part of the initial build, if you don't it just means you'll have to reinstall your OS and everything when you finally do make the jump.

And SSDs are the bee's knees.
