Current my main PC that I dual boot Xp and Mint KDE on is using 6 gigs of DDR2, Asus MB, AMD Phenom 9550 (2.1 Ghz). Using 1 Tb HD as OS/backup. Also ATI 4850 video
My question is would you A. upgrade to a SSD Ocz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820227393 or get a newer i7 setup?
I play online games and hate waiting for my characters to zone and slow boot times. Also if I got new HD would you get SSD or 2 other drives in Raid 0?
Part of the reason I want i7 is the option to install ram into 6 dimm's. My goal is to have enough ram to load 6-7 everquest characters with minumal amount of lag.
Also how well would Ext4+Kde or Gnome work with new SSD hard drives?
