That does make sense but, I'm suppose to build a tower for a friend so I guess I could just charge it to him and just select the rest of the hardware to be compatible for his build. Am I correct in assuming that the SSD doesn't give any improvements in browsing speeds? But, I still want one anyway. Thanks!
You are correct, but a SSD is an amazing invention, but expensive, WORTH EVERY PENNY!

RAM is cheap at the moment but I think you are right in selling it to a friend :P

Good Luck

Yes, the SSD won't have any affect on browsing, per se, but it will speed up your entire system, from boot times to how long it takes to open applications.

An SSD is probably the biggest improvement to any system. It will speed everything up and make the system feel so much more responsive. It will open your browser much faster, but like Deacon said, it won't help your internet speed. It will still be up to your connection.
