    With the lower wages too.
    I'd like to get a house in one of our big student cities, rent it out and move to.. I dunno. Cuba or something. Where NOK 10K would be more than enough to live very comfortably. As long as the place has good internet. ^^,
    I would if I could, but I can't, so I won't.

    Dabs have a Samsung SSD on offer atm, 80 for 128GB.
    Doubt the sale will last long enough for me to be able to afford it but at least the prices are coming down to reasonable levels now.

    Right now as SSD I'd go with the intel 520 or the Samsung 830.

    And it's really the best improvement one can buy for its own PC.
    Just remeber not to fill it all; a secondary normal hard drive to increase storage capacity is almost always needed.

    As for size, I'd suggest the optimal size range is between 180 and 256 gb.
    A lot of people use smaller sizes today, such as 64 or 128 gb. In my opinion for a standard usage pattern those sizes are too small.

    I agree stx. One should also keep in mind that the less space you fill on it, the longer it will last.
    I would if I could, but I can't, so I won't.

    Writing this on my new rig! Squeee!
    Now to red-ownload all my stuff. And the CPU fan I ordered was too big, so I could only fit 12gb ram. I'll have to get another one if none of my mates has one I can trade. :/

    I have a 120gb Patriot wildfire and usually only put games I am currently playing and any important applications on it. I use to have a 60gb but wanted to have some games on hand so ditched that. I can't really see myself buying a 256gb until they come down in price more, I could have gotten a lower quality 256gb instead of a premium 120gb but I rather have a reliable drive. With that said, try to avoid OCZ :P

    Picking up a 670 this Friday too, wonder what FPS gains I can see in Xenonaughts

    Which one are you going for? I can recommend Asus' DirectCU II TOP. Killer Cooling and nice and quiet. At least my 680 is, and it's not the TOP version.
    I would if I could, but I can't, so I won't.
