Default Re: SSD advise

I'm in the process of building my first rig. It is mainly going to be used for media. I have alot of music and a few movies. Well my question is I'm thinking of getting a SSD hard drive and don't know if I need a supplemental hd. If so how much?

The build so far:

CPU: phenom II x4

Ram: 8 gb ripjaws

HD:Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Sorry wrong link

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 470 Series MZ-5PA128/US 2.5" 128GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Thanks, do you think I need a backup drive?

Does anyone know how much space a 128gb SSD would compare to on a HDD?
