The point is having your OS, progs and installed games on that SSD. Rest you store on harddrives.
1. Why do you keep ignoring my posts?
2. You seriously want me to install games on an SSD? I've got 112 GiB worth of games... Well, some of my games aren't installed, so I have a bit more. Anyway, with 19 GiB taken up by Windows, 7 GiB taken up by apps, and assuming I'd want to have 5 GiB of free space at all times, I'd only have about 45 GiB with an 80 GB SSD.
3. As rmp459 said, an SSD only affects load times for most users. Once in a game or application, it won't affect your speed/FPS.
TBH, you've been ignoring people with good reasons why an SSD is less important than a CPU and you haven't provided any proof for what you say. You keep saying that the HDD is the biggest bottleneck in a modern system, but you haven't said what it bottlenecks. Sure, it's the biggest bottleneck when it comes to OS loading/app opening, but my ingame FPS won't increase by 50% like it did when I got a new CPU. And the stutters you speak of are uncommon. I don't get stutters because of my HDD. You also have to remember that people don't play the same games. Someone playing GTA 4 has other needs than someone who plays Crysis.Edited by B!0HaZard - 4/20/11 at 6:46am
