Well then, that explains my happiness with my HDDs doesn't it? If there's no point buying an SSD for games and all I'd need one for is to buy games then even if I had a 2600K and 580s there'd be no point in me buying an SSD

it's not being ignorant, it's called prioritizing.

And 80GB is nothing.

Ignorance is ignoring perfectly plausible reasons for not buying SSDs.

Being on a budget, I'd rather spend money on components that give me better FPS. You can buy all the things you want, IF you have the money.

When I could get a 256Gb SSD for under 150€, then I'd have no problem buying one.

Excactly. The big old bottleneck. With a spinning disc and a read/write head looking for data on that old spinning disk. A real old and classic bottleneck. Bottlenecking the otherwise fast and more up to date technology...

Let me know when the tech works.
The tech works. I have no problem with mine. Haven't since I installed it. You talk about RMA's like its a new thing. People start thread here about RMAing video cards ALL THE TIME. "I just RMA'd my blah blah blah and ill be down for 2 weeks"

Its not just SSD's, its all components. Motherboards included.

One more thing before I have to go to work. The last time you installed window, and this isnt directed at Steakhouse, but everyone, how long did it take?

When I did my install of w7 from my usb key, it took 9 mins. 9 mins from installing my w7 key to desktop. 9 MINS! Thats the fastest its ever been for me. Do i equate that to my i7 920? no, because on the same build on my harddrive it took over 30 mins. Did that show me the potential for SSD's?

Damn right it did. Embrace new tech. After all, we dont do things like water cool, and use dice pots for anything other then to enjoy our toys to their fullest potential. SSD's fall into this category. the use it to its full potential category.

I also trust that in a year or so the market will be full of those and the competition between manufacturers will result as price drops for the SSDs. So as it concerns me, i think i will try them out next year.

I've had absolutly no complications with my SSD. Once I put it in and reinstalled Windows 7 in AHCI mode, my experience has been amazing. 64GB (actually 55.8GB) is more than enough for Windows 7, ALL of my applications, and my 2-3 most played games (at the moment, Starcraft II and Guild Wars are on my SSD) and I have 10GB free of my 55.8GB available.

Because they just don't care. That's why. To them, it's not important. Let them have fun with their setup while you have fun with yours
I need to get an IPS panel. Other than that, I have above average audio equipment, an SSD, and a mechanical keyboard/decent mouse.

It is hilarious to see people spend extra on CL6 1800 MHz DDR3 memory over CL9 1333 MHz DDR3 memory hoping to get snappier Windows and faster in games yet think SSD's are not worth it.

I guess you don't navigate around windows either, or restart your PC for that matter. Actually I guess the second you press the power button a game automatically starts up because that's all you do right?

You're dumb.

/agree

You could clone a hard drive from a 6 year old laptop to a SSD and you would still notice a difference...Hell people have even said "This SSD breathed new life into my old computer"

If I had the extra money I would get an IDE SSD and stick it in my 91 IBM Think pad 1Ghz processor with 1Gb of RAM. I would use the thing too, because at that point the load time would be bearable.

I have no more money at this time...Spent it all on more H20 coolingz
