Unless somebody brings up a really convince argument otherwise thinking I'll just grab that SSD to replace my boot drive. I've been wanting to upgrade my storage, most these drives are old and a bit slower compared to their modern cousins. 180GB should be very comfortable as an OS drive and a handful of programs (mostly Office, Norton360, etc).
Twice a year I can get killer discounts on Intel products. Maybe this winter if I can grab the processor with a mobo for super cheap.
I been running my mobo and cpu since fall of 09 and they were used back then. The q9950 is 4 years old now. I know the upgrade itch well but I really can't find any reason why I need to upgrade my cpu/mobo. When the next console gen rolls around I be SOL but until then I m ride this until it I can't ride it anymore.
