I don't buy a SSD because the performance increase is 'meh' to what I justify spending $250 for.
A 40gb version would still be $600+. You won't buy a $95 40gb boot drive now, but you're willing to justify 600 for one of these? That doesn't make any sense.

I'd also like to know where you're seeing $250 40GB SSDs. (Unless they're SLC - why would you need SLC though?)

OTOH, I have "experienced an SSD" and it's far from the single biggest upgrade I've made in 5 years. That would be from Pentium III 733mhz - 2.13ghz (@3.2ghz) C2D. And then an equally large upgrade was from that C2D to my quad core.

The only thing that's significantly improved is boot/restart times. They are.. wow. Fast.

Improvements that were more "noticeable" to me: PIII->C2D. C2D->i5. 2GB RAM->4GB RAM. 5770->460. 460->SLI 460.
