Currently upgrading my system from an Athalon x2 5000+ to a Phenom x4 955 Socket AM3. (IE building a new PC)
Before I post my question I will list the specs.
This is the processor I bought
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
That is going in an ASUS M4N82 Deluxe AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI AMD Motherboard.
Using 4 2gb DDR2 800 (There isn't an AM3 only board that supports SLi yet so no DDR3 for me )
Going with 2 EVGA GTX 275s in it.
My question is, is solid state worth it?
I know they smoke any HDDs out there and that even putting one in an ancient PC will make they thing sing like new again, however, are they stable enough to run windows? Run all my applications?
Of course I have larger HDDs for storage, but I am wondering If I should take the plunge and spend about 100 dollars more for a 60gb solid state vs a raptor?
And before anyone mentions it, I know all about the mounting limitations of SDDs. I work for a computer manufacturer and have had to fit those things in several PCs. Half the time I just use zip ties for it XD.
