Yeah I feel the same when I see HAF in a signiture, only they're for 10yr olds.

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.

1.5TB+ of games...When is the last time you reformatted?

Honestly though...How many of these games do you play in a week? a month?

that much space in games is like archiving Movies you watched already...damn

Sorry I do not have the money to drop on a 30" 2560x1600 monitor...I will be happy with my HD quality 1080p is enough for me.

That size monitor probably wouldn't even fit on my desk...if it did, I would have no room for my keyboard.

ssd drives are WAY overrated. ever since anand came out with that ssd article everybody has been jumping on them.

i have 1 in my laptop and it has its uses in a portable you switch on and off, but for a desktop, you would see better gains in upgrading the "key" piece of equipment... video card, cpu, sound card, etc.

Those 1.5TB of games didn't cost money? You can buy a smaller SSD and just use it for Windows and a few programs like Firefox/IE. It's a world of difference in responsiveness.

Here is my reason for leaving MMOs on the HDD...

You rarely load zones in...a HDD is more than adequate to handle loading things on the fly while in an MMO.

Now FPS on the other hand like Crysis and especially Half-Life 2

Holy CRAP! HL2 loading stages! with the SSD its great its almost like you didn't even realize you just made it to the next part of the map which just loaded up.

Correct me if I am wrong dead wrong...but WoW is 30GB and that is a lot of static space being sucked up to load an instance about 20 seconds faster than the raid leader or your MT. -_-
Le sigh. I don't know how you deal with your SSD's crappy load times in games. Anyone who's not an idiot should be running a 12GB RAM drive

My opinion but I think SSD's still need another life cycle untill they become a "standard" drive for a system. Motherboards are still improving on SSD functions and performance. Until this plateus out I find them to be a bonus if you can field one.

RAID is a cheap and easy method to speed those HDD drives up. However save for very few programs that rely on Drive speed most programs load into memory will be far faster than even an SSD can be directly. *shrug*

People buy a GTX 580 over a GTX 570 for a few percent extra performance, but ignore SSD's that will make everything feel much faster and really sets the big icing on the cake by removing the harddrive bottleneck. Where is the logic? lol!

SSD's already had two life cycles/generations. We are in the third generation now. And even first generation was a totally different world VS harddrives.

WTH are you talking about crappy load times on SSD, that was for the raptors in Raid 0...

I don't wish to fully populate my motherboard with RAM. I also do not wish to take the time and money to create a DDR3 RAM drive.

specially when my SSD provides the similar speeds before the OS loads.
