It will definitely benefit from the SSD's speed factor, but I believe at this point, the cost factor of a drive, certainly for a lower-end machine( don't get me wrong here, I am not dissing your rig :) ) is still too high for me and many others out there. I would rather spend that cash updating main components in my rig!

EDIT I run V Raptors and even I'm envious of those numbers Prof! What did you bribe Santa with? :)~
That drive actually costed me an arm and a leg, an empty wallet and an empty house! The wife went with the boy to Florida for a week, on my expense ofcourse!
