How to Speed up your PC with an SSD

Our friends at WeGotServed recently dealt with a topic we all *believe* to be true, but they went ahead anyways and actually got some concrete facts to go along with it. I don’t think the results will surprise anyone, but maybe this is the extra motivation you needed to take the (rather expensive) plunge to solid state goodness.

It’s not all good news, however, bear in mind that SSDs are far more expensive per GB than a standard hard drive (though the cost is slowly reducing), and the capacities available are smaller. The sectors on an SSD can only be written to a certain number of times, so they have a limited (albeit very long) shelf life. That said, an SSD is  great upgrade for a system drive and today, we’ll walk through the process of installing an SSD in our Media Center PC and check out the performance improvements gained.
