Yeah, I'll at least be waiting till the i9's come out to see what happens with the i7 prices and then go from there.

How does an SSD work regarding programs? Do all of your program files need to go on the SSD? I've never been big in the "hard drive" area of hardware nor how programs install ... I just know I would put them in C:/Program Files or C:/Program Files(x86)

Ah. . . So if I had say my OS and 2 or 3 primary games on the SSD, a 30GB would do the job just fine, yes?

Then install all the other programs like Adobe, rarely played games ...etc on the Slave.

You could get a OCZ "Solid 2" 120GG for $345 ($315 after MIR, but OZC sucks for MIR's)

Newegg.com - OCZ Solid 2 Series OCZSSD2-2SLD120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - SSD

That's weird...maybe it's just with their SSD's because I've read nothing but horror stories as far as the rebates go on them with OCZ.

I hear you on in the cost of the SSD's...I will wait for Q3-4 this year, 25nm SSD is supposed to come and that should drop prices of the ones currently on the market at least.
