Solid state hard disk increases the computer speed by about four times or more. Also they last about 10 years under server conditions. Under desktop or workstations they can last even more.
People think that overclocking their computers increases speed. As the processor's speed increases the magnetic hard drives still be at the same speed no matter how much you tweak your computer. The most bottleneck device in the computer is the hard drive.

AudioFreak said:Even modern IDE drives usually give faster boot times than SCSI drives because you avoid having to wait for the extra BIOS to initialize.

Having said that the performance of IDE HDDs has made signifcant gains on SCSI HDDs over the past couple of years.
Look into ASUS motherboards for much faster boot times. Don't forget to enable quick boot.If you want fast boot times...
Thats what they say about CD-Rs in the 1990s. They were over $2000 US dollars back then. I e-mailed E-Disks about two years ago when they had only 9 gigabyte hard drives for $2000.I dont see that SS drives will be getting much cheaper anytime soon.
Now you are debating on IDE vs SCSI. IDE makes hooking up hard drives very easy. SCSI is very hard to setup. You have to worry about terminating. Many controllers for SCSI are not compatible with today's motherboards and OS. To squeeze all the performance from a SCSI hard drive. You have to be very, very picky on a SCSI controller card. For IDE, just about any IDE controller that you can find can handle 100 megabytes or more.
USB version 2 or Firewire beats SCSI-I at a fraction of the price.
