I only ask what I asked in my first post, for my poll. As I've said, many people buy the latest and greatest, but ignores SSD's. It is not a question about money, because as I've said, they could have bought a 2500K over a 2600K and they could have bought cheaper RAM's, and had money left for an SSD.

So that is what I'm asking in my poll. Simply if people feel an SSD belongs in an enthusiast system in 2011, to go along with their otherwise great hardware. Simple as that.

This question has been ignored by many, coming with all kinds of ridiculous arguments and flaming. People who haven't even tried an SSD. Hence the poll.

Oh, and to answer the poll, no... because it depends on the user's needs. The word "should" being there is why I say no. An enthusiast is a person who is passionate about the subject, period, full stop, end of story. If someone has a PC that is a bit aged, or a PC with no video card, or a good PC with no SSD, are they not an enthusiast? Yes, they are an enthusiast regardless. Your enthusiasm isn't defined by your funds nor your buying choices. There's a difference between elitism and enthusiasm, and you trying to brand everyone who isn't in your box as lesser than enthusiasm is really off-putting and a bit arrogant.

Let me add this. I see where you're coming from by saying SSDs get ignored and underrated and passed off a bit. That is true. However, it doesn't do you much good to attack the situation as you are. They're underrated and ignored, yes, but they're not necessity either.

Arrogance and elitism go hand-in-hand. Hello, my name is UrbanSmooth.

Even after you've read my above post? Well, you have the right to your own opinion. I do not agree with you. Simple as that.

OP seems to think one builds a computer to be labeled as enthusiast, I build a computer that best suits my needs. For me a faster proc, faster ram and good gfx card is more important than boot times, therefore, that is where I put my money. If I had more money, sure an ssd would be cool, but it is not priority.

To be fair, that may be why you build a computer, but you are at OCN because of "the pursuit of performance". I think that to some degree, this is what makes one an Enthusiast and not just a User.

I even installed a 80GB Intel SSD in one of our Office computers where I work. A lowly E4300 socket 775. Let me tell you, the guy at the office had never experienced a computer that fast and that silent. He was impressed to say the least. And he have owned a great deal of computers in his life.

he's using it for word, excel, CAD, email and lot's of stuff.

turrican9, do you have a job? Currently you account for 15.9% of the 700+ posts in this thread! Is there some sort of forum lingo for the way you have been sitting at your computer all day defending your thread? I'm going to call it goal tending.
