Re: Build Questions
Hehe, question 1 is one of those Intel vs AMD questions which can be difficult to answer. As Slaymate says, it does depend on your budget.
Yep, an SDD offers (much) quicker read and write performance. Although (at least before TRIM was bought out), it was thought they'd start to suffer from performance degradation after a while. Hence people typically suggest to use SSDs as the OS boot drive (since OS files don't change too much), and use a HD (such as the Spinpoint F3 which is pretty fast for a HD) for the storage.
