The part that is more important depends entirely on the person, simple as that.

Just because an SSD was more suited to your needs it doesn't mean it should be that way for everyone else.
Someone with a computer that can't play games at all will usually benefit far more from a new cpu and gfx card over an SSD, what's the use of good loading times if the game your loading can't even be played?
People who do a lot of CPU dependent things will benefit more going to a newer faster CPU (that said someone with an i7 950 or thereabouts should spend the money on an ssd rather than sidegrade to SandyBridge)

It's kinda like saying that someone suffering from asthma will benefit more from paracetamol than the inhaler. They will not benefit at all, in fact they'd be worse off.
I tried saying this. It falls on deaf ears because anything the original poster can't even understand reason for is "illogical".

This thread is nothing but childish elitism at this point. While I sympathize with the original poster's points that SSDs are ignored more than they should be, it's not doing a good job of making discussion of it by berating every post that doesn't worship SSDs, and berating every poster that doesn't have an SSD listed in their signature.

You're getting off topic here. Start your own thread about monitors if you wanna discuss that!

SSD are expensive compare regular hard drives until price go down I'm never going to buy ssd.

normal people who use their computer for gaming,listening to music,watching movies,video converting,photopshoping not worth it upgrading to ssd instead get Sandbridge cpu you will have better performance gain.

SSD won't give you higher frame rate in video games compare to upgrading to SB cpu lawl, being able to load faster seems pointless unless you need to really open up 20+program at same time.

Just like when Raptors came out. I didn't jump on board. I do not like buyers remorse.

Sure, I'd love to buy an SSD, but I'll wait til there are hard drive equivalents as far as price goes.

I didn't even go SATA, until prices were closer to the IDE price range. I do not want to buy a drive, with only enough space for an OS, when I could buy a traditional hard drive, and have space for storage and software too.

I like performance, but I like having money too. So Price to performance goes a long way for me.

I skipped the 400 series of NVIDIA GPU's, And didn't really skip a beat as far as gaming goes. I don't plan on staying in the stone age, but the price to upgrade from my 2 velociraptors to an ssd or two; isn't in my budget right now. I'll wait for the people with cash to burn to pay top dollar. I'll get one when the price drops.

They may be like me. First off just to load my programs I need 200+ GB and then 20GB for Windows 7 64-Bit and that's not even including my linux installs. Second a good 7200 rpm HDD with a high data transfer rate is SO much cheaper per GB than an SSD.


And third how the heck does this have 53 pages in 7 hours O.o
Ok lol weird must have had an old cached page still 73 pages in 13 hours O.o

So turrican9, how come you're using on-board sound? A dedicated card for $100-200 would sound a million times better than what you're using.

You can't compare Raptors to SSD's. Going from regular 7200 rpm HD's to Raptors 10 000 rpm HD's is ridiculous in comparison to HDD VS SSD! Lol!

SSD's are no longer new technology! As I've said we're already in gen.3 SSD's!

Again, off-topic. Trying to ignore what this thread is about. Go elsewhere with your flaming
