My rig is old. Phenom x4 9950 on a Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H. SSDs are currently too small for me to really bother with in my desktop but this might be a nice boost for my 1.5TB apps&active files drive. However, thinking back I should have gone with a drive bigger than 2TB for storage as stuff is spilling over onto the programs and boot drives. So I suppose I do not actually *need* 1.5TB for programs but I would not bother with less than 250GB dedicated SSD. and then there is the lack of TRIM with this board... :/

most of my computers tend to see parts getting swapped in and out. not always permanent upgrades. Why? Because I am crazy.
