Computer Bottleneck- HDD - SSD. giving data speed to proccessing speed

Through the windows experience im at 7.8's / 7.4's... with my hdd at 5.9. looking at getting a ssd to level everything up.... but what i dont know is... how does the read/write speeds translate into processing.

what read speed is equal to the rest of my rig? I just dont know how it translates iops/1GB's read/write to GHz proccessing.
The giving data speed to proccessing speed


Phenom x6 @ 2.8
6GB RAM @ 1600
HD 6870 GPU.

Edit:
good video showing new revodrives coming.

Here is an As SSD for my WD1002FAEX 1TB sata 6GB/s mechanical hard drive

Here is the same test on my Intel 80GB X25 M

For an OS drive the advertised speeds really mean nothing to the average user unless you are going to be transferring large files all day. The most important thing is access time- how long it takes from the time you push the button until the application actually opens. No spinning circles with a good SSD.

ahh nice, how does that work out in your rig.. is your ssd giving you cpu data faster than it can process it or cpu still waiting for data at moments?
would a single core 3GHz cpu be equal to 200MB/s read speed?

When you push the mouse button to open a program, it is open by the time you release the button- as in instantly. I really don't know the answers to any of the other questions. It does not seem that there is any waiting by anything. As far as a single core, I don't know as I have never tried one. But, my opinion is that whatever type of CPU you have, your performance will increase. I have never talked to anyone who has gone to an SSD that hasn't said it is the biggest improvement in performance that you can do to a computer. You will have increased startup times and apps will open quickly. It won't make your internet speed faster or your CPU faster, but it will allow your cpu to not wait on your hard drive.

The only problem I read the most about from those that want a ssd and those that have a sse is the price. The HDD has been a bottle neck for years and the ssd has went a long way to solve that. I don't have any charts or graphs to show. I do remember the first time I used my ssd all I could hear was; I can't believe how fast things work and that came from me. It was hard for me to part with $300.00 to buy it but after using it I am happy I did.

That's true. And others, like me, will say-"I'll never use anything else." Every time I get on a computer with a mechanical hard drive I am amazed that I used to use one and liked it.

I almost got a Revo drive... Brink just bought one. They're very fast; however, know in advance that the Revo drives do not support Trim.

Indeed they do... but still very pricey. Is this going to be your OS drive?
