    It seems like to me that people are transitioning to the SSDs (at what rate I don't know). I won't have a SSD for a little while though because of the cost, but the motherboard I ordered has the sata 6gb/s for a reason .

    On another note, does anyone use a small, cheap SSD (like 20-30Gb) for the O/S to attain fast startup, and put media on any old traditional drive?

    Looking around on eBay I see you can get an Intel X25-M for around $100-150 or so. You want to avoid the early models with the JMicron controllers cause they freeze up now and then and cause "stuttering" performance problems. Not nice when you're listening to music!
