    You know man, with the way things are going I think I'll update my netbook and put the desktop off for now.

    Are you sure. Investing in a netbook may be a dull proposition. Those things are slow by design.

    I know its not the wisest choice but man I'm not going to have all the cash right away for main desktop build. I know I can order part by part but still.

    BTW mobile text really sucks for long messages.

    Which ever way you decide to go, SSDs are the most noticeable performance increasing hardware upgrade you can do, everything runs faster.
    Use the SSD for a boot drive and a HDD for data storage.

    The rumors that SSDs don't last long are extremely exaggerated.
    SSD Write Endurance 25nm Vs 34nm



    My recommendation for a SSD, Crucial or Intel.

    Have read that SandForce controllers are having problems now, BSODs, but some may not experience this.
    For me, at this time, I would stay away from SandForce controllers, OCZ, Corsair, etc.
    But, that is just my opinion.

    I'm still waiting for my SSDs. I want one for the OS and one for games.

    Plus, you have the option to Raid your HDD's for a little extra 'oomph' if willing to run the RAID 0 gauntlet. Things feel 'slow' with anything involving my single 1TB drive. But when it comes to stuff you don't want to lose 'slow and safe' is better than 'fast and oops'

    Redundancy RAID arrays are another performance/data safety option, but with the price of HDD's atm, it's a bad time to be setting one up

    An easy and ideal setup: One SSD, 'One' RAID 0 and one non-member storage drive. Throw in a USB 3.0 External and you're laughing.

    My Vertex 2 34nm has been a champ, but since that (and 95% of my current rig) is going to my sister, I need a new one.

    I went straight for the Crucial M4. Like the intel, it doesn't set the 'benchmarks' on fire, but they are the most stable brands/models currently out there.

    Yeah, I have to put my build on hold because of costs, they're through the roof!

    Plus, a much needed vacation is much more important than a computer.

    I'm sure you didn't really mean that, something more important than a computer

    Thinking that will get you in trouble, writing it is dangerous, next you'll be saying it out loud....
