Enjoy simply put SSD does speed up load times which will in turn allow you to perform more gaming action...unless of course your one of THOSE ppl who only enjoy multiplayer and must now wait on others... (I do not consider you one of THOSE people friend you enjoy the MMO alone and in groups)
Oh no offense taken! I am not easily offended, lol.

I play mostly alone in MMOs... makes no sense to many people, but I just group up with my GF or whoever happens to be doing the same quest in my area that needs help.

Boot times are just the icing on the cake. And talk about boot times, aren't most of us here at the OCN overclockers? If so, aren't most of us rebooting our computers time after time after time to go into bios and change a few settings, looking for that stability??

So tell me those boot times does not matter! Lol!

An SSD is pretty dumb to spend money on when you are trying to throw together a budget gaming rig. Regular HDD's work fine, and you can always add a big SSD later when they get better. Pinching your pennies to put together a 2500k rig is a perfect example of where you would want to save money now and skip on the SSD.

That said, I'm sure a lot of people spent the extra $100 on the 2600k over the 2500k. That extra hundred would bring way more real-world performance if it was spent on an SSD instead of hyper threading. I got my C300 for that price and it was worth every penny. I think people get so blinded by, "omg $100 for 60GB noooooo" they forget that storage isn't the goal of an SSD, speed is. 60GB of SSD gets me a windows install, a browser, drivers, winzip, and every other small program I can think of. I still have 20+ left for a few games, or one huge one. Everything goes into the 1TB HDD.

Everyone has their own budget and needs, but SSD's should probably work their way into most systems with a moderate-high budget unless the user has very specific needs that justify the money being spent elsewhere to them.
Excellant explanation! As we speak, I'm waiting on a 13 piece delivery from UPS with my first build's parts right now. Unless there was some Newegg error in my favor, there will be no SSD in it. As much as I would like an SSD, it's not in the budget right now, besides... look at my system sig; I will get a huge improvement anyway (running a 5400 on SATA 1.5g... compared to my 7200 SATA 3.0g)

My birthday is in mid-May, so I think I will use grandpa's b-day money for an SSD... until then, it's a non-essential.

Rep+ for DayoftheGreek!

SSD = Epic win lol.

Seriously tho, a 60gb Boot SSD can be bought for under $100 now. SSD's should be in any system over $800 imo. It's literally the best upgrade anyone could do.

This is true, I don't even see the Welcome screen in Windows 7 with my SSD. Gawd I hate booting up my GF's machine, lol.

To the Op,

It's All about Cost for me and Lack of Space with an SSD.

For My Laptops an SSD is ideal (But Honestly not needed).

For My Desktops (Gaming rigs.. All of them I might Add.) Which Do Everything (Not just Gaming) My OS and Programs wouldn't even fit on Your (Ops) 2 SSD's All of My Games in total are over 1.5TB..Just The Games!

One Could argue I could remove Programs and Games to fit on the SSD's.. To Me that is Not a "Solution" as I Do Not want to have to reinstall a Program or Game when I want to use or Play it.

I have the Money to easily Purchase as Many SSD's as I would need for Everything But I Cannot Justify the cost to do so... There are Far More important things in life to dump that money into especially when a Person has a Family.. Just saying.

SSD's are Nice but they are not needed and Most people could better spend the money on other things.

But Hey thats for Everyone to decide on their Own.

OP You should Not be calling People Ignorant.. Learn Some Damn Respect

Never heard rendering issues in relation to HDD/SSD
No fsx is mainly random hdd/ssd read. The cpu runs at around 75% now i have an ssd and the gpu only around 50% i use whats called ground environment extreme which is constantly loading from the hdd/ssd while flying

flight sim x is a very cpu dependant game gpu's come second and hardly make a diffrence in terms of performance. the cpu and hdd is key to this particular game. It's rather unique and i doubt many other games have a hdd priority

I could see building a new lightning-fast SB setup without an SSD, but for anyone who has experience with them it probably has already become a future upgrade consideration.

A lot of people here just don't have the money to do everything at once. Give them time and I am certain that most SB builds will eventually have SSDs. Just not right away. And the systems that never get them probably didn't need them in the first place.

But no, I personally would never build a SB system without an SSD for the OS and most-used programs, but once again that is just me.
