It's not totally necessary, but it will make your PC feel a bit more 'snappy'. Things like boot times, game loading times (if it's installed on the SSD), or any other disk-heavy things will improve.

In gaming, for example, once the scene is loaded, an SSD won't bring any other gain in performance - it's all CPU and graphics from here.

Well I might as well buy it, it's a nice upgrade and I still have money left over for it. So why not :p

You will still use the 500gb, think about all the software on your PC, other then your most played games, those go to a mechanical drive. IE, Microsoft office, Ventrilo, old games you play once in a while. MY 750gb Mechanical is at 235gb used. That is the drive you want to D/L too, have your documents, music, pics etc etc.
