yes a SSD would help and well worth the $$ Look at crucial or another brand I have a OCZ and wouldn't recommend it to anyone but we wont go into that here.
Currently mine uses 1.2v load voltage, he might have it set in bios with no LLC and that would equate to roughly 1.325v load? (guesstimation)

Also, i have a C300 128gb, its great!

Edit: BTW, i love your name and system specs!

I had the same CPU and upgraded to sig rig. VAST improvement.

I also noticed a difference when I put in an SSD. The newer one's are a lot faster.

You don't. Standard combo is small SSD for the OS and certain programs, big ol' HDD for everything else.

Smob was questioning OP's sigrig

post #26 of 30
OP if your going to get a SSD, make sure you get a SATA III SSD...i.e. Vertex 3, C300, C400, Performance 3 and so on, it is noticeable the difference vs if you only got a SATA II. Also I would recommend getting 120-128GB that seems to be the sweet spot, yes a 64GB will hold the OS and maybe a few extra apps, but having the extra space will make it worth it. Check the SSD section of OCN. Also remember if you get multiple SSD's and set them in RAID you lose TRIM, which imo is not worth it.

Psh, not when you have 4 SSDs in a Raid 0 *wakes up*

yeah you may have a faster Read and Write, but the loss of TRIM I think would hurt... I mean why do you want all that garbage taking up additional space when the one major downside to SSD is the $/GB. If SSD's were less than a HDD in cost I would totally agree grab 5-10 SSD and throw them in RAID 0 for the lightning fast speed, but then I would probably would not go with SATA at all and would look more towards PCIE SSD's.

Thread Starter 
I have two 320 GB drives and two 1TB WD Green drives in RAID-0 for media

Is the difference that noticable between having ~300 vs ~600 MB/s on SSD's? I can't see how waiting an extra second would be detrimental. Not really worth $100.

simple answer YES, but it's personal preference also, I;m an inpatient **** and hate waiting for things to load, that irritates me more than anything and also part of the reason why I do upgrades.
