Buying from only one site really sucks away on your budget, NCIX, Microcenter, Amazon, B&H, SuperBiiz are all great places to buy from. We would not recommend any places that would steal any sort of your information.
And hopefully newegg will get some 680s back in stock soon, you just have to keep refreshing the page. Whenever the 4GB and non-ref cards come out, the 2GB ref ones should come back in stock.

Having them on an SSD would mean quicker loads. Not to mention like 5 second boot ups.
So basically you are saying, load times will be faster, eventhough you have to wait for the rest of your group to do anything. SSDs Do not benefit online games, they benefit single player more, and the load times are a difference between 20 and 30 seconds. For ~$80+ you can put that into a better GPU and have better graphics.
And boots dont matter on a gaming machine.... xD
