Windows 7: Solid state disks

SSD as your OS drive is the way to go as mentioned. For desktops an SSD for the OS/installed software plus HDDs for data storage is the best cost effective solution IMO. I still stick with 1 & 2 TB HDDs.
My desktop has 2 SSDs (one was installed for linux) plus 2 HDDs for data. On another PC build I have 1 SSD and 3 HDDs.

SSD's really are the best upgrade you can give to any old PC. My mother still uses a pc from 2005 and she refuses to buy a new one. It was extremely slow so I bought a Samsung EVO and it's improved the pc so much.
I use an SSD as my OS drive and keep my data on a spinner. Eventually when the prices have dropped more I'll completely ditch the spinners.
HDD's still win on price per GB. That will change in a few years though as the prices are dropping every year.
