I agree, it is the most tangible way to feel your rigs speed.... Having applications open the second you release the mouse button is amazing. As well as having your computer start in 15-20 seconds.

IMO - totally worth it (I have two)

To OP I don't think it is particularly worth it for you per GB to upgrade to SSDs. The data migration alone will wear down the drives fairly quickly--not to mention you will lose storage space because of cost.

Do you mean wear down the SSD's or his raid drives?

SSDs. The amount of data that can be written on flash memory is significantly lower than mechanical drives.

Also, a thing to remember about SSD's is.

Sandforce = Speed, MB/s
C300 = Insanely low latencies. Basically this is why you want an SSD.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
