Nice, what we (consumers) want to see, increased production of SSD drives to drive prices down further :toast:

I am so close to pulling the trigger on a 240GB SSD at £140, this would meet all my needs for OS/Apps and games with me only requiring storage. As it stands at the moment I have an SSD for OS/apps and some games with the rest of the apps/games on a storage drive.

128GB is plenty imo. My SSD holds all my programs and such, I downloaded all my games 800gb worth to my SSD one a time then transferred over to my storage drive, and when I want to play a certain I game I just transfer it back over to the SSD which always has at least 80GB free. transfers over at 595 mb/s and steam only downloads for me at 2.7 mb/s... so yeah xD

Why not download them straight to your HDD instead of one at a time to SSD then transferring??

And every time you want to play a game you transfer it to your SSD at 595MB/s from a HDD? not following you sorry :confused:

It depends on the user. I'm pretty organized myself and use storage space quite efficiently so I believe a 128GB SSD would be fine for me (I might be getting one in the near future).

I might be incorrect with what I'm going to say, but I believe Steam must be installed where your OS is, and it downloads games as .gcf (grid cache file) files, which are stored in the steamapps subfolder inside the steam folder, which, again, is located in the same drive as your OS.

Yeah, if you want to play your games at SSD speeds, Steam has to be installed on the SSD itself, then use Steam mover to transfer games from your HDD to SSD after initially downloading them to your SSD.

Also, I meant 195 mb/s is how fast it transfers from my SSD to HDD and vice versa on Steam Mover. So basically all my games are ready to go whenever I want, compared to downloading a game I want to play randomly at only 2.7 mb/s.
