Where is my post? I spent so much thought typing it. And my superior English skills
. And it wasn't in invisible ink
I'll try to remember what it was, lets see:
SSD's prices are still expensive for per GB. If my calculations are correct, it is like 4 times the price of HDD's.
I personally use a 128GB SSD for a single boot system (Win7) and the remaining is +40GB. I guess it is good enough for 1 game installation if you don't mind uninstalling games after getting done with as long as you can keep the save stats. I'm saying this having the high price in mind. if affordable, things might be different.
I find that HDD's these days have become reasonably fast. Any performance HDD with 64MB cache that is. This excludes power saving HDD's.
On my rig, Win7 boots really fast and speed on my 4TB Seagate HDD's (3 of them, cool, huh?) w/64MB cache don't let me wait for long.
SSD's life span and durability are less than those of HDD's and are directly affected by repeated write/delete actions. I believe games are installed/uninstalled much more often than operating systems. For this reason, I don't recommend SSD's for games.
Then again, budget is the judge.
I hope this post stays here this time
