Are SSD dropping in prices everyday?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I haven't really followed SSD prices when they first appeared until now. I am interested in getting 2 in raid 0. However, I don't know if spending $200 on 2 ssd is really worth it.

Give or take, anyone know if they are going to ever drop below 50c/gb? or that wouldn't be possible because of actual hardware is expensive?

They're getting cheaper. That's what mass production does.

You think we will see 50c/gb this year?

Don't think they are going to drop in prices fast enough to justify the waiting time. Also, I wouldn't recommend to RAID0 SSDs. It's better to get one but with larger capacity. Crucial m4 128GB is the best for your need.

Well i bought a OCZ vertex 2 about a year ago for £120 i think it was its now £80 so yes they are dropping abit in price but only because its out dated now, with the read and write speeds alot quicker than this one i have atm.

But in any case spending $200 on an SSD is well worth it imo its one of the best upgrades ive ever done you can really notice the differences

Problem is, right now I am using 100gb for my current games+windows. So 120 isn't enough because I am sure I will add another game or two here in a month. So if I get an SSD its either going to be only for windows+programs. I don't know if that is worth the 120 bucks though.

Just optimise it a little better.

Turn off not needed stuff and such.

Some games and programs will make hardly any difference being on ssd.

Windows, sp1, full updates, 6 games, Word and Photoshop and I had about 5 GB from 64 GB.

Ideally I like to Have at least 20 GB free space, so that's games halved.

Do the maths.

Do you play all those games at once?

A little organisation can save you a lot in the long run.

As for if it's worth it.

Hell yes.

Well I have windows +sp1 and all updates.
MS Office, 3dmark vantage, 3dmark11
Bad Company 2
Company of heroes
Counter strike source
Medal of Honor

I just had MW2 installed but I removed because I never play it anymore.

I wouldn't mind putting some of the games I only play like 2-3 times a month into a different HDD than an SSD, like Company of heroes. However, Steam doesn't let you use 2 hdd for installing games.
