I backed out and bought a WD Cavier 500GB instead, only 29.

SSD drives are a bit too costly for me at the moment.

prolly a good choice, i dont think a 30gb ssd would be worth it, and the smaller ones are even slower than the big ones

Good choice, unless your prepared to lay down the cash for a decent size SSD you are better off with a HDD.

Theres always the option of using a small SSD just for the OS and installing your games in a partition on another drive, this is what I do as I would never fit all my steam games on a SSD. A Hybrid SSD is another option but then you in the hundreds.

Cool, not having TRIM was one of the reasons I went with a SATA 3 SSD over the Revo.

This is the fastest array i've personally worked with in a desktop. We hit a cap of 3GB write, but in reality in the OS its only about 1.2Gb sustained write.
