I have a 60gig ssd for my c boot drive and a 256gig ssd for my d and I really am spoiled when I have to help someone with their machine and the old physical platter disks. But not cheap. the 256gig was around $500
but they should really be coming down in price soon. The best improvement is in your boot disk as long as you have another drive for your data and programs.

Good point Rich.

If you are not in a hurry - the price will come down.

If you are going to buy an new pc in the next 6-12 mths - it will likely have an ssd as well as a larger regular HD anyway. Quite a few already have that setup. USB 3.0 ports as well .

Might think of putting that 150-200$ towards the new machine - instead of getting a ssd now.

buying a SSD was probably the best investment i ever made. my boot time in Windows went from minutes to about 13 seconds. I load most of my games in about the same time. Firefox loads the millisecond after I click on the icon. Trust me, this isn't an upgrade you want to pass up.
