There's always going to be another higher level SSD, GPU etc... By the time we normally see any price drop on high end tech, it "Always" invariably means there's newer tech out that blows it away.
We have plenty of examples. from every, GPU, and hard drive generation. Ultimately my Titan will be considered "Junk." and worth $250 but I won't care because I'll be running my rig on the newest Geforce Zeus line of cards. Yes I made that up as Titans were imprisoned by the other gods (Olympians) with Zeus as their leader
So end of story, Buy whatever is in your price range when you can pull the trigger and be happy....and don't tell the wife. Yet give her comical hell, ribbing her for buying those new shoes & dress, "On Sales"
And feel good inside until she looks at your bank statement. Then with a straight face say but it's "The best."...and see where that gets you.
Seriously though, On topic,
I'm eyeballing these new SSD's and itching to buy, but I really don't need it now. Everything practically loads near instantly, and blinks on now, with my Intel 520's in raid zero. (I'm always Imaging of my c: drive, though I've never lost a drive yet) safety first. And since I upgraded my Intel X-25 80gig Raid 0 to the 520's I keep having to increase my "Backup" drive sizes that I copy the C: Drive Image Backup to.
Upgrading to a 1TB SSD in Raid-0, while appealing, would force me to also buy several TB of spindle HD's to copy my safe C: Image
Backup to. I feel like my Disaster Recovery Manager at work. He's always talking "Storage times 3 or 4", which makes sense for a company.
