So.. I used to be a member here back maybe 10 years ago (gasp!)
I am thinking about upgrading to an SSD for my system drive, but let me tell you a little about what I do, and see if people can help.
I primarily work with video, images, multimedia stuff. I store all this on my X: drive (1.5tb, data going back to 1990) and have it backup every week. But I need some more RAM as my main HD is paging out a lot (buying now). I love the sound of a 10k, I love knowing when I am paging or there's some weird issue hitting my HD.
That said, it just doesn't feel that snappy, and lately when my computer is hanging or slow I can hear the 10k crunching.
I have a GA-P35-DS4, 4gb of RAM. This week I will upgrade to 8GB, and also potentially buy a HD/SSD either to use as my system drive or place to put my page, photoshop swap, after effects swap, etc on.
Anyway, looking at HDs and RAM, the idea of tossing my 4 1GB sticks out, makes me think about a new mobo/cpu as well... I have a q6600 quad core 2.4, unsure if that's considered slow today.
