intel isnt lowering prices because they expect people to be complete idiots and say "hmmm, it has intel on it so i must buy it!" thumb.gif

I've noticed this lately and it's awesome! Just picked up a pair of Samsung 830 128GB to run in RAID0 and it's stupid how fast my machine is now lol. Newegg had em on sale the other day for $89.99 a piece thumb.gif507

Hm, I still don't have an SSD but I really want one thumb.gif still waiting though since prices are dropping insanely fast, the thought sticks in my head that if I buy it now, the next day it would be 10% cheaper xD

I bought a Samsung 830 256GB SSD for €217 which equals to $274. If converted to USD/GB, it's not quite on the 1$/GB but in Euros, that's very cheap for a very reliable 256GB SSD.
I still remember the times where 256GB SSDs cost €500 more.

Long term I would expect SSD be cheaper per Mb than HDD as its electronically approx equally complex but mechanically a lot simpler. HDD's are mechanically so complex that if you can make one you have also ability to put a man in the orbit and bring it back.

SSDs are good. Dropping prices is good.

What is sad about that? So they load maps slower than you? Whoppie...they'll still have better frame rates (depending on the GPU drivers). Know which parts affect what. Honestly, I think an SSD would be more important in a weaker computer like most pads the Chromeboxes than in a gaming computer. Unless you have next to no patience. When 256GB cost 100 or less or 512GB costs 200 or less then I'll be less hesitant to buy them in the future. But maybe by that time they'll have a platform which 32GB or greater RAM amounts will be common/cheaper so a SSD will simply become insignificant to me besides booting and holding a RAMdisk image. I mean if everyone is saying that IO and read/write/latency are so important than they should be all up in arms demanding more RAM capacity for their mobos and CPUs to handle. That said I'm really hoping that prices continue "plunging" as I'd still like a SSD since they're the next advancement.
