I think SSD's are only as important as the system built around them. No matter how bad ass your components are your HDD will always be your bottleneck thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif Which is where an SSD comes in handy, But if the system cant keep up with or is only as fast as the HDD then there's no use for an SSD as it can't be utilized properly..

post #439 of 2077
I'd always build, I'd always advise friends to build, so (a)

I buy a new major component every 2-4 months, so just about every (b) 12-18 months I get around to buying a new motherboard and that's presumably what constitutes a "new" system.

(b). I have an OCZ Vertex 3 and when i put it in I didn't notice much of a difference, but I have a friend with a roughly equivalent comp and his is MUCH MUCH slower to do anything. It's not a big increase for gaming, but it's worth it just for the Windows speed increase alone.
