Windows 7: Point of getting an SSD?

Patrick, There is really no need for us to argue. I can see your point on the HDD first. If it is HDD ot SSD as only disk for a new build, you have a point that I accept. My point was regarding an upgrade choice between a SSD or faster CPU on an existing PC where a HDD is already present.

As far as games go, I have my own views. A multi Billion Dollar business is not neccessarily a good business - example drugs. A lot of todays violence amoungst young people is attributed to computer games as one of the sources. I don't think we should sponsor that

I actually did a research essay on that not too long ago. That's not true. In some rare cases, yes. Either way, there's no reason to argue over opinions. To each their own.

Even one 'rare' case where people get killed is too many. That is not a matter of opinion - that is tragic.

My i7 870 setup had 9 SATA ports on the board and I was a happy camper with 8 drives and a BD-Rom, upgraded to the i7 2600K and couldn't find any mobos within reasonable price with more than 8 ports, so I had to remove a drive.
It seems that every time I upgrade, I have to lose a drive, lol

My Q6600 setup had 9 Hard drives, 7 SATA and 2 IDE, and a BD Rom drive,
I like that case. I've got an IStar super-tower as my main rig. Huge, but nothing on that. Where can I get one?

Really makes putting together a rig and changing things fun when you have a big case.
Thing is, nowadays cooling isn't usually an issue, components last longer, and to keep on topic, SSD's are small footprint.
Things have really changed.
I still want a big, pretty case though. Must be in the blood.

I'm talking about opinions on games. You also can't base rare occurrences on games and say that it's a fact and it always happens. That's my point. It's not even really about the game. It's been proven that it's more along the lines of the person's background and how they are raised and what they go through. That has nothing to do with a game.

Get the SSD now and go with a 128gb, place as much as you can to about 10%-8% free. Then go into a maintenance mode where you harvest old games of to the spinner and place newer games in their place. The time spent now loading all this software is way more intensive then changing a CPU out later.....Get the SSD and you will never look back!

There are now people getting killed because of Facebook.
Fact.
What if they access Facebook with Windows 7?
Should we ban Windows 7?
Beware of slippery slopes.

Victor,
I'm very pleased with my full tower except for cable management issue but then my case isn't for peoples viewing pleasure. I admire but don't foresee the real estate needed for such massive cube enclosures. I have a goal of upgrading to a 800D but actually hope that Corsair or some other mfr. will finally incorporate all the features I'm looking for in a case.
