ssd + adobe creative suite = ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have done some research and been debating between 2 7200 rpm drives in Raid 0, a 150gb raptor, or a 64gb C300.

I think i will be going with the ssd cuz 64gb is enough for win 7, games, and my adobe creative suite with room to spare. Now upon my research, it is bad to use SSD's to write/rewrite data over and over, eventually making them slower. BUT, Adobe has been known to use the hard drive it is installed on to save copies of large files, thus taking up HUGE amounts of room on the drive. (I have had 1-2 gig files open in photoshop and indesign)

Will this degrade the speed and life of my new SSD?

I've never noticed such a phenomenon occurring with me. It shouldn't be a problem especially with newer SSDs that have TRIM installed. Generally speaking SLC SSDs last for about 10 years before they become unwriteable. MLC SSDs have a lifespan closer to an average hard drive of about five years. Then again, who on OCN has the same storage medium now that they did five years ago? Not many...
If your really concerned you could always use something like this:

Add some more ram and run a ramdisk for scratch.

8 gigs of ram seems to be plenty. the files being open takes nearly 6 gigs of space on my hard drive and only while the files are open. as soon as i close photoshop/indesign the hdd shows the space returning. just wondering if these repeated writes on my new ssd would degrade it quickly? I would like it to last as long as possible.

where did you hear that ssd's were supposed to last 10 years? I plan on having this PC for as long as it still functions so life expectancy is important for me.

A good article to read. It looks like I was wrong though, SLC drives seem to have the capability to last a lot longer. In short you would have to rewrite something like 20GB a day to an MLC SSD for it to fail in five years.
