I agree with on all your points
I may not see or notice the difference - but there will be a difference, no matter how minute it will be
I'm currently contemplating getting a new Sandy Bridge PC Lian Li system - TOP TOP TOP of the line, i7 2600k, OCZ Revodrive x2 pci express for OS, vertex 3 240 for programs and Seagate momentus xt 500 gb for most often used photo files, docs and code (I design websites) and a 3 tb HDD for music and movies, 1000 watt gold plated corsair psu, Asus Maximus mobo, lianli PC-x1000 tower, Radeon 6970 2gb, 24 gb ddr3 1600 MHz corsair dominator ram and a dell 3011 30" led. But because I love OSx I also think of going with a MacPro with over expensive outdated SATA 2 connections for the same price - and if I go for MacPro SATA 2 I probably won't notice if I spread data over several SSS but if I go the lianli SATA 3 sandy bridge route, I do think I will see the benefits of several ssd's.
What do you say
