Would you get an SSD as a main drive?

Why wouldn't you? I'd get a 3-4 TB HDD to use as a storage drive, though.

My currently main (out of the four builds I have in overall) station:, now, OP, I guess you would be able to answer it by yourself.
I play these anytime and at any place: "Guitar Freaks" series, "Silent Hill" series, "The King of Fighters" series, X series, DDR.

I have used my SSD as my main drive for years and the regular HD for my second drive for all the games. I don't think I'll ever use a regular HD as a main ever.

I'm using an SSD as my "main drive" right now if by that we mean most programs of any weight at all are installed to it. I have much more HDD storage space but it's a file repository, few programs are actually on it. For that matter, I'm pretty sure I have more data on SSD than HDD, aside from emus I don't really do huge collections of pics, movies, music, etc.

Imagined you saving thousands of pics of the bird.

I have a 120gb as main drive. They're so fast that you never have to leave your computer running if you're not using it. You can turn it off and turn it back on in about 25 seconds or less.

1TB is not enough to be my only hard drive, so I have a 4TB HDD for storage.

I got a 120gb SSD last week, I can't imagine having my OS on a HDD again. I'd like to get rid of my HDDs but I don't think it is cost effective for me yet.

I SSD'd everything in my house including a crusty old Intel Atom netbook with WinXP. Now it boots and loads faster than my parents new Intel i5 Win8.1 hybrid drive ultrabook, go fig. :P
