This holds true in cars, TVs, etc.

Comparing to my previous Core 2 2.4GHz rig that had been used for gaming and web site design, the new rig with i5 processor is noticeably faster both in games and applications with the same video card. The SSD drive in the new rig certainly has its share in the speed increase, the same drive would've made the previous rig faster as well.

Is it really that much faster and has been worth of the money spent on it? Well, maybe not and I probably would be just as satisfied, if I've added the SSD drive to old rig. At the very least I should've waited couple of month for the Sandy Bridge...

I agree with pparks1. I am the one that posted about the AMD cpus. I does depend on what program you are running. My issue is the cost thats all. The AMD 6 core turns into a 3 core to boost proformance for non 4+ core programs.

I just want to see what everyone is using and prefers. Personally I use western digital and seagate both. I have actually never had a seagate fail on me but I have had a western digital fail once just tonight so I rely on both as they are both pretty good brands. Brands I would avoid though...
