SSD is same thing, except there cheaper now
Actually, a GTX 580 is a considerable upgrade over a GTX 480. Why haven't I upgraded? Because I bought my hardware last year to build last year, however, didn't finish my build until last month.

YOU ARE NOT PAYING FOR STORAGE.
YOU ARE PAYING FOR SPEED.

A 580 waxes a GTX 480.
It also uses less power and makes less noise while doing so.
The only reason its $500 is because its the fastest single GPU available and that still has some merit.

Once again, get over yourself. Just looking at the thread title makes me want to puke b/c i know what kind of people will be lurking in here and how OP will react to everything that will be said that goes against his thinking.

Im done, you're probably desperately looking through my sig rig trying to find something u can say smack about. Have fun with that.

I have a feeling that over half the people on this site don't even know what a bill is.

For goodness sake, it's not like there's many people outright saying SSDs are inferior or worse or anything. People are just trying to explain some reasons why not everyone with a Sandy Bridge or enthusiast system has one, but when someone can't grasp how that could be possible, and acts immature and childish and starts calling YOU illogical, stupid, or dumb, all over something so silly as because you don't have/need/worship an SSD, my goodness, the thread needs closed, and the original poster needs to grow up too. Pride/enthusiasm is one thing. Acting childish/immature/close-minded/shortsighted/elitist/mocking towards others because "my hard drive is faster than yours", well, that's just pathetic.

Here is an interesting thought.

Go to your bios and drop your PCI-E to 8x. The reason for this, is to demonstrate the idea behind bottleneck. Its still a video card, and its still working. You may have to adjust some setting to make it playable, but it would work.

Owning an SSD isnt suppose to be for elitist, or a luxury item. It boils down to performance. Normal platter hard drives are good for what they are good for. Right now that comes to storage.

For your foundation, the media which you store your OS, should be faster. Not just boot times. (which btw, we get it. its a great argument, but really... dead horse... stick.... duh) Its about the ability for your cpu to communicate with your system and the OS.

If you open up the channels, and allow your computer that bit more information to be access and utilized, you take a step forward into finding the next bottleneck. Which still may be the SSD, but guess what, they can make it faster with more common usage across those platforms in which they build them for.

Improvements in software that run the hard drives, and the software stored on harddrives gets better. TRIM support is like DX9. Its not the greatest, but guess what, DX10 will come. With that better communication, better speed. It will come in bigger waves then it does with platter drives.

Debating the budget of an SSD, in a system built for performance is a conflict. How can you claim to have top tier performance when leaving out a key ingredient. Like it or not, SSD's and the like are here. they are going to advance, and they are getting better. you cant deny that there is proven deferences between platter drives and SSD's.

If your struggling to put a 570 in your system, instead of a 590, and then debating dropping to a 4xx series for the ssd, then dont do it. Save for it later. But be aware, that with out it, your missing something that can and does make your system, "something more." That crowd, the ones that triple and quad SLi 590, and xfire 6970's and do 3 monitor surround. should consider SSD's to be part of their parts list.

I think Im covering so many past threads, as I have been working today, and just now got a chance to catch up. Im sorry if the thoughts seem to jump from thought to thought, but its hits major points that i wanted to touch on.
