Hey once SSD's come down in price everyone one will have one. It wasn't that long, ago for a someone my age, when not every broke person could afford a cell phone the same can be said about flat panel displays and TV's.

No worries... WalMart's job is to ensure that everyone can afford all luxuries someday.

You couldn't pay me to go back to mechanical HDD's.
post #503 of 851
for me its kinda what was stated in OP ive never used them and their still a fairly new thing which makes the price shot through the roof. in about a year ill probley have a couple....

remember when flash drives first came out, and SD cars, a 512 Mb was like 80 bucks a gig over 100. you can get 4 gigs for 20 bucks now lol

just waiting for it to get more for less you get me?

I have seen most that have replied don't even have SB yet defend or object to SSD. The OP asked

I see plenty of people with these setups with only harddrives in their sig!

Even the price difference between a 2500K and a 2600K would be enough to buy a good enough SSD!
I think the overall answer to this is most people could barely afford the system let alone another $200 for a SSD.

Tho like you and as many others have specified the performance gain from using a SSD over the HDD will be noticeable in just about every instance.

I have a SSD, and I could live without it.
I doubt that most office rigs that even have a 2500-2600k is overclocked anyway.
sure a SSD is fast and all, and some might claim that it will increase productivety. But I claim that if there is more work to be done people will still get it done, even if they have to sit and wait 2-20sec longer.
And since most office pc´s never get shut off but insted goes into sleep mode. a SSD is pointless if it is just to boot windows.

I really would love a SSD . It seems like PCi-e units might be the best way to go . At this point ,I am basically saving my pennies for LGA 2011 .I am sweating ,not being able to play with SB and hit 5 Ghz ,so it should be fun when I upgrade at the end of the year . I agree that the prices for SSd's will drop a bit more .Just think how expensive 4GB Memory Modules were last year.Now they are Dirt cheap.

I don;t recall anyone saying office rigs are using any SB. Tho I know our office has just placed an order for 20 SB Rigs... Now I doubt any of them will be OC'ed.

PCI-E is faster than SSD, however it also does not support TRIM.

Did I mention there is no need for people to be so jealous of SSDs? They are cheap as hell now. Go get one and be enlightened.
Did I say that there weren't ANY gains whatsoever in going to an SSD? No. I only said that the main bottleneck of loading a map is in the CPU. If you went to an SSD and only load maps 3 seconds faster, where do you think the bottleneck is?

And it's game-dependent too--depends on how the game stores data on the hard drive.

Read and understand what was written before you try to flame someone.

Really, storage is one of the few things I wont pay a premium for, because the prices fall soo quickly, and it stays as good as it was. I mean I just got a 1tb 7200rpm hdd for $20 in a deal and a year or two ago, that wouldnt have been heard of anywhere close to that price
