Default Re: ssd's

You could but it is not ideal. You need something with a lot of storage for all of your other files. SSDs are still too expensive for that.

If you have the money to do it, by all means go for it. I would too if I could afford it.

The Rules for HDDs and especially SDDs:
1. Backup
2. Backup
3. Backup dammit!

Yes there is no problem what so ever with that.

As other members have pointed out the only restriction you will have is space but if you can cope with say a 128 SSD which isn't unreasonable for normal use such as running windows, installing programs and a couple of games.

Anything more than that ie storing media or storing lots of software etc you will want either another internal hard drive or an external.
