Hello, I currently have a Hitachi Deskstar 750GB 7200RPM 32MB Hard Drive and it is running fine and everything but at the time when I built this computer I did not really know how much faster an SSD was so I just went with the hard drive to save some money, but know that I am much more tech savvy I know how extremely fast SSD's are and I am tempted to replace my Hard Drive with an SSD but do you guys think that it is worth it? I would need to get atleast a 250GB SSD because I would want to transfer all of my files over and the operating system.
Thanks in advance!

You should get a small and reasonable sized SSD..preferably 120GB!
They're at a very reasonable price right now, and you could use your hard drive as a storage drive (like I do).

I use my 60GB SSD for Windows, applications, and a few games and I still have 25GB free due to my music, movies, and other games (ones I only touch on occasion) being on a 1TB storage drive :)

These are my recommendations in a 120-130 dollar price range :)
