2 questions.

Do you need that extra 25mb/s?
Why wait as it might take ages? Technology does get old, even SSD.

Buy now, 6 months later.... obsolete.'Tis the way of the pc.

That's a complete myth, actually. It's something that dates back to the 90s, back when advancements really were being made on a regular basis that made the previous gen seem unusable by comparison, but nowadays, everything on the market has a long useful life.

To put it into perspective, it's now four years since the Q6600 hit the shelves, since 4GB of RAM became a budget-friendly possibility, since 320GB drives were commonplace, since the 8800GTX lead the GPU market, and since Vista was Microsoft's newest OS. If you'd bought that PC then, it'd still be powerful now, and it'd still be more than capable of running anything on the market. Fifteen years ago, 4 years meant the difference between a 486 and a Pentium 2. These days, well, there you go.

Graphics cards become obsolete very quickly still.

For example, earlier this year, the 5770 was one of the budget-pcs most popular card but is now put into the shade 6 months later by the gtx 460 etc. Etc.

Technology is advancing, but its not focused on pc's anymore. People are happy with what they have

I also forget about how we are advancing from TN monitors at the moment and moving into IPS.
And how about dual socket motherboards? And modular Psu's? And affordable water cooling?

Good price for an ssd. Would pay a bit more for an ocz vertex 2e, not for the quicker write speed or very slightly faster read speed but for the quality of ssd support and drivers.

In what way is the 5770 now obsolete? I don't doubt that maybe it doesn't sell as many as it used to, but I'm pretty sure it, like the 460, is a Dx11 class card that's more than capable of running every game there is at smooth framerates.

Whut? My four year old Dell 2407WFP rocks an IPS panel, dual socket motherboards have been available since the days of the Pentium Pro in 1995 by the earliest of my knowledge (and probably a while before then, too), modular PSUs have been around for years and don't render anything previous obsolete by any means (keep spare connectors in a box in a drawer somewhere, or keep spare connectors attached to the PSU where they won't get lost, mmm, decisions), and watercooling's been around for at least a decade, with kits emerging somewhere around the half-way point during it.

The only obvious obsoleting I can think of in recent years is of the 10K RPM Raptors, which have been pretty effectively nuked by SSDs. Other than that, things have stabilized nicely on the PC front, and a four year old system still offers a highly respectable amount of grunt today.

386 was 1985/86 and the Pentium 2 was 1998 ish.

Not sure how thats 4 years but hey ho!

Pretty good price, though like many I had my heart set on a Vertex (or possibly C300).
Pulled the trigger on Sunday... it's coming today (£159 for the 120gb, plus £5.44 Quidco validated) :3

The true price per/GB really hit home when I realised it will cost over £10 to install my beloved L4D2, whilst it is only £3.74 to buy the game at the moment lol.

I agree... I remember my shock at how my previous DX2/66MHz and DX4/100MHz were blown into the water by the Pentium 75 dad bought me - I was convinced he'd wasted his money as I'd assume the DX4/100 (with it's TURBO button :D) would be more powerful :)

Exactly - first thing I did was move my steam folder off C: to another dedicated games drive.
When I jump into the SSD market (soon) I'll use it just for OS.

Personally,I use a small SSD (60Gb) for a windows OS drive, install everything to it (apps, office, steam, games, etc) then move the games over to a secondary HDD using "symlinks" (google it - its very easy). This means the system thinks everything is on the primary SSD for simplicity but you are not using up the space.

I usually only play a few games at any one time so I typically move these back to the SSD so you get the speed increases in map loading, etc & ship them over to the HDD when I move onto new games - still playable with no reinstalation & doesnt use up your SSD.

Great minds think alike. Had thought this might be an option so had been investigating if it was possible. Not fully up to speed with the process yet but I don't think they're called Symlinks on Win 7?

Two or three of my games will be on the SSD and everything else on my F3.
#31
It works really well - creating a symlink is just a command line to run (the app is called mklink). Vista & Win7 use the concept a lot for arranging pics & music but creating your own if fine. Works with STEAM too - I have some steam apps on my SSD & some on my HDD with no issues.

Some people think it's a lot of effort & ongoing management. The argument usually is:

...Why not just buy a large enough SSD in the first place...


or


...I will only buy when SSD comes down in price...


Personally - I think it's the best bang for buck upgrade you can do & symlinks make it possible to do it on a budget.

If u really want wait for a vertex 2e to come down to this price. 275mbps read/write


2 questions.

Do you need that extra 25mb/s?
Why wait as it might take ages? Technology does get old, even SSD.

Buy now, 6 months later.... obsolete.'Tis the way of the pc.

I agree with you on most parts, apart from when you say a token amount more (about £15).

If you did that to every component on a computer, you would pay a very hefty amount!

For example, if you wanted a gtx 460 super oc for £160, with your theory, we could say "Yh, i'll put £20 more in their and get myself a gtx 470.... or £35 for a 5870.... and on, and on.

This is perfect just for someone who wants quicker boot times and wants it cheap.... and fast

The 266fsb (DDR1 supporting) Athlon 1400 never ever cost I bought one on release for a smidge over 200 quid. Do you mean the whole computer system? I suppose if you added a ge-force 2 Ultra (the mac daddy) and a couple of 120 gig hard drives and a Asus K7N8X-X Deluxe motherboard then you would start to climb into the 1500 quid territory. Must of been quite the system :)

The premium for using dual socket motherboards was a lot less back in the Pentium II days. I built a dual socket system using Slot 1 and it would take regular Pentium chips and even Celerons whereas today you have to use Xeons for dual socket and the premium is high.
On top of that you typically have to use Registered memory today whereas you could use standard RAM back in the day. So overall it was a lot cheaper back then to move from a single to dual socket.
