With your 945 you should not have any video editing performance problems anyhow. I already notice a big difference between my duo cores and my Q6600 (which is a lot slower than the 945 - but one day I am going to OC it).

Hey tweak,

Tis a good write-up. A few comments

What do you mean by higher data density? You can get higher density in a 2.5" HDD than a 2.5" SSD. You have a con that says lower capacity - they seem to contradict.

Increased application launching - do you mean decreased time to launch an application?

I don't know, HDD are pretty reliable. Do you still think SSD have increased reliability? It is only this month that a SSD manufacturer has given a 5 year warranty on their product. Tha has been the norm for while with HDD.

Cheers

The one and only reason that I now have a 120 GB Intel SSD 320 Series in my HP desktop computer is because the 1 TB Hitachi HDD that it came with failed after only 8 months of normal use.

As far as durability goes, xtremesystems did a test with several brands of SSds to see howm many writes they could do before death. I was quite surprised. The first one to die had 525TB written to it. It's a long thread but very intresting. This is one of the charts they had long before the end.

I'm still amazed that people are still scared to use their SSD for fear they'll wear it out.

im not scared! i shoved a corsair force 3 120gb in my gaming pc as my primary boot drive, and had BF3, red orchestra 2 and Skyrim installed on it.

I have about 60gb remaining, but am considering getting a second. As my only other drive in my pc is an aging sata 2 250gb (i say aging.. its never been used, its just old spec'd)

I think the only time ill use a mechanical drive again is for my home server, where obviously large sized drives are needed.

One spinner for Macrium or Paragon images is a good idea. (Which ever image software you use)
Even an old IDE in good working order will work for images.
You won't need it often but when you do????

So your 250GB spinner is a good idea for that purpose.

This morning on the way to work, I was behind this mini-SUV, not even a full sized one. It was painted up nice. The guy was a locksmith.
