Just FYI, most people turn their computers off when they aren't sitting at them.
I considered folding, just haven't found the time to set it up. As for leaving it on, I've been doing that since the 90s. I thought it was a more common practice that I thought

My vertex 2 raid performs just about the same performance as a vertex 3 sata 3 for about 100~ cheaper so it's definitely something to consider. I have a separate drive for the OS for this reason.

I think i should just save for another Gpu instead or for BD or sandy depending how BD performs when it comes out
SSD degrade is based on read and write cycles not so much operating time, unless you intend to use the drive for more than 5+ years I wouldnt worry about it.

Perhaps you do not pay for electricity, and you live in an arctic climate and your town currently has a shortage of space heaters?

Yes, but again you lose TRIM and need to leave your pc on 24/7. It also involves having a bit more money than sense unless you are actually harnessing that speed for something other than half a second faster boot times.

If you use a modern OS, lot of background operations go on when you are leaving your computer on for an additional like 20+ hours a day. Those read/writes count too, not like they stop counting when you stop seeing them.

I do this specifically for the reason of isolating issues with my computer, as the OS drive and files are separate with installed games and programs. as well as speed benefit for certain programs. And again, I have not seen a performance drop as many would suggest.

You missed my point earlier, I suggested not to use raid as the main drive, and leaving the computer on with an SSD will have no significant effects, I've had it this way for months.

I think my SSD was a waste of cash...big deal...I can boot up a few seconds faster. If I had one larger than 60GB and could actually install some software on it it might be worth while, but boot time is not important. Most of the time I turn on my machine and walk away. So now it sits idle a little longer before I get back to it.

All my software is still installed on a RAID 0 HDD array. The software is what needs the perforamce boost, not the OS. If any software gets any sort of boost from the OS being a little faster I sure have not seen it.
