yes i have, but it doesn't hold enough space for the things i will do with my PC. they are also very expensive. maybe in a couple of years when SSD's dominates the marked, then i will upgrade to one.

Well normally people get a 120gb or 60gb SSD and put their OS and programs on there and use a normal drive for storage.

Yes, 60gb should be fine for OS and programs, you may be able to fit 1 game on there too, depending on how much programs you have. If you use Steam/Origin, this will help: Upgrade soon, but what?

Get a cheaper OCZ Vertex 2 or 3 60GB. Can be had for almost a dollar a gig these days.

Also, I would change the GS 800w to a 650 or 750 TX or HX (Corsair, of course). You don't need that much power for that little system.
