If you didn't read it before I added it, check the second paragraph of my last post. I fully agree with the "SSDs are ignored/overlooked" part of what you say. I don't agree with the "they are necessary" part though.

Yet again, I say that necessity is dictated by one's own needs/desires. While it may be great enough to you that wouldn't go with less, it's not suddenly necessary for every use and/or every person. That is what I don't agree with about this. You're trying to fit everyone else into your own ideal box, and it just... doesn't... work that way.

I have no problem with you disagreeing and/or thinking they are required for your OWN use, or YOUR idea of an "enthusiast" system. You're entitled to your opinion. I am simply saying that the necessity of it doesn't apply to all of the rest of us.

i reckon having a SSD for boot is a great thing to high end systems. i never trusted the tech enough and thought it was too expensive, but recently they have become larger, and slightly more affordable. where i live anyways.

so for my sig rig, i threw away the chance for extra ram and HDD's for a SSD. no regrets so far. fast as lighting, makes it feel like a modern computer.
my poor old wolfdale cant keep up anymore
just IMO.

700+ posts for this? Why?

Of course any enthusiast system should have an SSD. When they can be had for less than $100 and have around 64Gb of storage why not?

The speed and I/O's are irrefutable.

Some people here would buy everything else but a SSD. The most expensive CPU, motherboard, graphics card, RAM, watercooling and everything before they would buy a SSD! It totally insane! Instead of going for the next best CPU, mobo or RAM and have money for an SSD! Where is that logic?! Lol ! Hence the poll!

ROFL @ 64GB SSDs, come on, man. We all want to put our whole system on the SSD, not just "the OS and a few apps." LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not disputing your needs, but an SSD affects everything in your system, not just boot times.

Mechanical hard drives are the reason why programs don't instantly open up when you click on them.
It's why when you save in a game, theres a 2 second pause.
It's why loading a level in a game takes a small amount of time.

An SSD will affect everything your computer does.

That's the OP's main point as well. An SSD affects your computer more than an upgrade from a core2quad to the best SB cpu or upgrading from 4GB to 12GB of RAM.

If HDDs and even SSDs weren't such a bottleneck, we truly wouldn't need RAM as the storage device would be able to provide the data to the CPU instantly.
