Do you game? Why even have a rig, if it's not built around a simple $99 solid state mini-ram hard drive?
you are really shallow....
OS on SSD.... the only time you notice it is during boot up. any sleep and hybernate mode especially on win8 makes that moot
as for loading times for games, there is little difference anyway between a fast drive to a SSD
rather then OS for a single user i see it being beneficial if there is multi user or as a storage/NAS drive. no delays for spin ups, no slow downs for read/write head competition for accessing files etc

My 840 Pro, used Since January 31st, So thats 2.35TB wrote in 169 days, works out to be about 14G a day.
Going back to this chart
If I have a 840, the drive would last 16.7 Years, More than 5 times the warranty length. In most consumer usage scenarios you would run out of SSD warranty before the you reach the TLC NAND's write endurance limit.
well thats 14gb of average use, i run VMs etc so multiply that 14GB daily per user on my VMs so obviously i care about my lifespan
I'm still looking for affordable/reliable storage SSDs where there will be alot of writes to it
