But to comment on an earlier topic of discussion: Getting a solid state drive was the best thing I did for my current system. I have a small 128G one, just for the OS, a few core programs, and two/three favorite games that have long loadtimes or stream a lot of stuff from the HD (Witcher 2 and Gothic 3, currently) - all the rest is on a quality standard HD. But it makes such a difference for starting up and just responsiveness of core stuff, I just can't imagine going back. So maybe not for games specifically, but for general use SSD is something I really recommend.
SSD makes a big difference. I don't normally play more than 2/3 games at a time so my 128GB SSD doesn't seem like a huge issue. If I get new game, I don't uninstall the previous one but just move the old game to different folder to free up space.
