There is a point to that. The hard drive is where everything starts. The speed increase on my system is x10. Everything I do is Instant, I can even play Crysis on High unlike some of my other builds "with better specs all around" and can only play Crysis on Medium.

I agree that hard drive is one of the most important parts of the system behind the CPU. I'm waiting for SSDs to come down in price

Using it as C: (OS and App) drive.. only using about 30GB on it right now.

My next upgrades "when I get the money" is the mobo and the cpu. I tried putting a AMD 5600+ in but it over heated so I had to send it back. I guess I need a new mobo and either a 680 or 750W PSU, but this pc is fast as hell (no lie) since I put that ssd in.
