Windows 7: What's your memory assessment speed? [2]

I'm not selling SSD's, but it is by far the best performance improvement you can make to a PC. It's not just about boot times, everything is faster. But if you are happy with your PC, it is all good

If you try a SSD two things will happen.
1. You will want a bigger one.
2. You will want more of them.
It's a bunch more than just boot speed.

What A Guy said.
What Layback Bear said too.
I say as an experiment, run on 16GB RAM and see if you notice any difference. An SSD and 2400 or 2600 RAM will make you pee your pants.

For regular Windows and program use, I'm sure there's very little to effectively no difference with 16GB RAM compared to 32GB. I guess for me it would be the difference between dual channel and quad channel, and I couldn't make as large a RAM drive.

Still thinking about getting another 32GB for 64GB, and yes, an SSD. It's not a priority for me at the moment though. (The 5.9 score gives me a laugh at least. )

Unless you have need for that much ram, the SSD will make a much bigger difference. A Guy

To me SSD is a great big hunk of fast RAM that when the power is removed it still remembers everything from the past and can locate it. Kind of simple explanation but it works for me.

RAM (or at least decent RAM) is still many times faster though, but yes, SSDs are significantly faster than spinning disks and aren't volatile like RAM.

I won't beat you up on it, but with the amount Ram you already have, I guarantee a SSD will make a bigger difference

I understand what SSDs have to offer. Thanks.
