    As I understand it when a SSD breaks often you can still read the data you just cannot write anymore to it.

    Wouldn't a single 5870 or 5900 be a better option than 2x5850's? I've not checked recently but from my experiece it's almost always better to buy a single faster card than combining 2 slower ones?

    I'm also tempted by an SSD but for what I'd want to spend all I can get is a 64-80Gb drive which really isn't big enough as a windows/programs partition as far as Im concerned. Maybe when they start offering 256Mb drives for around £200 i might re-consider.

    If I had to make a call between spending the cash on an SSD or graphics i'd probably go for a video card. Or better yet why not just buy a single HDD, a single video card and save the £200-300 you would have spend on and SSD/2nd vid card for upgrades next year?

    Tempted by a new PC myself but there's always something shinier just about to be released! At the moment it's Fermi that's stopping me upgrading but I'l sure there'll probably be something else next month (Gulftown ,SSD, 3D monitor, touchscreen, list goes on!) aswell


    EDIT: Just noticed you reply and that you've pretty much done what i'd suggested anyway!
