Gaming mice and keyboards are nice, but the performance boost you'll see from an SSD is going to enhance your gaming experience a lot more than snazzy input devices. If you don't have enough for that drive right now, keep saving. you'll thank me.

Also, you are far less likely to spill coffee on an SSD.
So Crucial finally made a product as reliable as the Intel counterparts. Good for them. : )
I still find SSD's useless. Though you have given me an option for when they get 3 times cheaper. (Ex: $200 -> $50)

It's basically a hard drive.... but ten times faster, how's that useless?

The failure rate is still higher than that of HDD's. So far only 2 companies (Intel and Crucial) have SDD's with a steady reliability while the rest are either all over the place or have a very high steady failure rate.

This is true. It's still very new technology, though.

I'm not really enjoying having a 64 GB SSD. Too much stuff wants to save to the C drive and I run out of space.

I've got a 120 gb SSD...and it reads 20 gb left with only ONE game on that drive (it's league of legends). If I put Battlefield 3...there's gonna be nothing left...

So don't.

I have a 128GB SSD too. I install the bulk of programs and games on another hard drive. Games with tons of loading screens (MMOs) would benefit from an SSD, BF3 and LoL not so much.

Obviously no music or videos go on the SSD either, that would be plain silly. I have 55GB free atm.

I'm not trying to derail the thread, but people that build their own systems do so in order to tailor it to their specific wants/needs. At the end of the day, anything that can boot an OS and read/write data will do. for example, I keep linux on a flash drive because I dont use it that much and just need a backup OS in case my drive fails

Now I will agree that they aren't necessary, and you can get comparable speeds from the right RAID-0 HDD setup, But I don't like waiting for stuff to load.

Not to mention that you can get even better speeds from a RAID-0 SSD rig (which is what i'll be doing when SSD are cheaper)

It is ridiculous to spend hundreds on cpu, mobo, cooling, performance RAM, and all that and not consider an SSD a viable option.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand...
