It looks to me, if I wanted to throw $50 at my system to make it a little faster, then I get a 32GB SSD and use it to install my games on it and run them from that drive.
If I want a boot drive, then I guess I would have to go bigger.
Anyone have any data on the reliability of SSD's as boot drives?
Are HDD more reliable?
If you have a Z68 or better chipset, you can use the SSD as a cache drive. And you could get away with 32GB as a boot drive, provided the only thing on it is Windows (Windows 7 tends to float around 20GB). But if you want to go beyond that, it's best to get 60GB or more.
And there really is no question of reliability, unless the firmware on either sucks.
