    I'm not really sure you actually need a SSD. I got a western digital raptorx 160 gb for the OS, and it works just like a charm. The games are installed on secondary drives, and therefore you split the i/o when you play games. If you're sitting on a pile of cash go for the ssd though.

    On that site raptors actually cost more you get a little more space but don't need space as have two 2TB drives.
