It is more useful when it's intended for things that will actually depend on the speed of the HDD, especially the speed during smaller file operations. The OP doesn't take answers to his questions well
Though it's an improvement nonetheless?
The main reason against them I'm seeing in this thread is "they are too expensive". Surely then that point is not that SSD does not offer an improvement, it's just that you can't or won't pay for the improvement.
It's the same as people who pay Â£100 extra for a graphics card that will give 5fps more on one of the latest games than the cheaper one. Why buy that card? Because people like to improve their systems and try to reach new heights.
So you can argue that SSD is not worth it for you, but you can't argue that it won't improve aspects of your system, some of which may be indirect improvements to your gaming experience.
Once again I'd like to point out I'm not rich. There is a reason I have i5 and not i7 etc.
