They are expensive, I skipped it for now with hopes to upgrade to one later, I'd rather have a faster GPU than an SSD.

For me this is very interesting. I still fail to see why people spend a ****load of money on high-end systems and ignores the one thing that really speeds up the system and gives a blazing fast user experience - Namely the SSD

I purchased an OCZ Vertex 2 120GB, and I used it for 3 months. It broke on me about 5 days ago, and since then I've been using my storage drive as my boot drive (WD 1TB Blue SATA3).

The difference hasn't been groundbreaking. I get a 5.9 in Windows score rather than a 7.5. Other than that, I boot up about 10 seconds slower. Programs feel like they start at the same speed, and everything feels the same.

In the end, I'd go with a hard drive if I could do it all over again:

Hard drives have proven for me, at least in my situation, to be more reliable. They are also significantly cheaper, less of a hassle, and honestly I don't notice much of a difference.

Programs I use include Bittorrent, Firefox, Starcraft 2, Photoshop CS5, Corel Painter, Windows Paint, VLC Media Player, Warcraft 3, and a few other things. So I do use my hard drive.

I still fail to see why people spend a crapload of money on high-end systems and ignore the FEW things that make the thing an enjoyable experience


The display - why spend a couple of hundred dollars per year on GPUs if your monitor looks like crap?

Keyboard - Why spend so much on a computer if your keyboard feels like crap?

Audio - Why do you spend so much on your computer if you watch a lot of movies and listen to music but still have crap speakers?

Storage - why HDD if you play loads of games? SSD helps




These are the main gripes I have with spending loads of money on PCs. You know what? I'M GUILTY OF ALL THIS TOO. I don't have the freaking money to buy these things. I mean, half of my PC was given to me free of charge! You really think I could have the pwnage everything? I choose what is the most important to me and go with it. SSD is a low priority system for me. My first goal is to get a proper monitor now. I want my monitor to actually make use of what my GPU does.

Then your SSD was not a very good one. I have 4 Intel SSD's. And they are heaps faster than any harddrive. Have not had a single problem with them the last year. I go with Intel SSD's. Proven technology..

If that is what it takes, I will put it in my sig. And would you please stop posting that stupid picture? If you have something against me stating facts again and again, because of ignorant people, why not just leave this thread and go elsewhere?

Are you running those in a Raid0 configuration? Damn that's a lot of SSD's.

The OCZ Vertex 2 120GB is a relatively decent SSD in terms of speed. Of course, looking at quality, I'm not-so-sure since mine did break.

My SSD was fast indeed. But SSD's are not a proven technology. To say that Intel's SSD are some sort of proven technology is like saying Sandy Bridge B2 mobos were a proven technology (bad analogy I know since that's entirely different). What I'm getting at is that SSD's are not yet mature in my opinion.

edit: And honestly the only reason my SSD was any good was it loaded photoshop quicker, and photoshop was a bit smoother. Everything else (games, etc) load just as quick.

Because then you would be ignorant of what he's doing and he wouldn't want you to be ignorant
