SSD drive worth the effort?

Post by stinkfist on Wed Jul 07, 2010 7:23 pm

Hello,



I am getting ready to upgrade one of my PC's to a SSD 128gb drive. Below is my current PC configuration. I do alot of HD movies ripping & also some Cad/Cam programming. Will I notice a difference with a SSD drive compared to my current 7200 RPM Seagate 1tb drive? Do applications run faster with SSD drives? Or is it just faster reboot and load times? Also what about data transfer between folders? Is that faster?





-Intel Core i7 975 Extreme Edition 3.33 Ghz

-8 GB DDR3 1600 Memory

-Nvidia 480 GX

-1tb 7200 RPM Seagate Hard Drive

Hello,

It really depends on what your budget is. SSDs are expensive, but they're fast, really fast. Boot times will increase tremendously. Copying files and running applications install on your SSD will all run faster.

It will help when loading files from it only. It won't help much when you're ripping movies, that depends on your CPU speed.
