    Starting to look a lot more useable with a decent size (though I suspect the price will be quite high).

    Don't you just love Moore's Law?

    A year or two from now we will have one of these things in every machine! (One can dream!)

    Yeah, I'd like to know the price on this, too.

    240/160 seems very fast - but I wonder if that's "hyped up" just a tad, for marketing purposes. If not, then it would be very fast.

    Having bought a VelociRaptor, I got SupCom 1 & 2 going the other day, I'm still tearing my hair out waiting for levels to load. Similar experiences with Crysis and FarCry. Additionally, Windows (Vista) still takes too long to load.

    If the new SSDs were to show me noticeable changes in the above, I'd invest, although benchmarks don't seem to prove "noticeable" changes. As soon as I see changes in a 250+ SSD, for under £200, I'll likely bite the bullet.

    IME, all of those pieces of software spend more time waiting for things to "initialise" than waiting for disks to get them data.

    I'm sure they'll work along side the QX9650 rather well
