In 1998 I paid $221 dollars for a 4.3 Gig Western Digital hard drive. Contrast that to $175 for a 2TB Western Digital Caviar Black HD in 2012 or $212 for a Samsung 840 Pro 256 SSD drive a few weeks back.

My how times have changed :)

As to the OP's question, the enthusiast in me says get the better performing SSD drive. A Yugo may be a car, and it may get you from point A to B, but it's still a Yugo

BTW good choice with the EVO.

Circa 1997 I was given a Win 95 machine that had something like a 440MB HDD, yes MEGAbyte. It has a whopping 8MB RAM installed. The bro-in-law who had had it bragged, "that's almost half a Gig".

Yeah, times have changed, and continues to with regards to tech pricing. I paid $235 for a 120 Gig SSD drive back in 10, four years later you get twice the storage for less.

I bought a custom made machines in 98 which cost me $2500 bucks. Today you get 10 times that amount of power for less.

Yeah prices are steadily dropping as the tech gets more and more commonplace, and the cost of manufacturing steadily decreases.

Anyway we're getting off topic so...
