For example Bucky lists something about putting his games on one but there are probably less than 20 games on the entire market that see appreciable load time reductions with an SSD and most of those are MMOs. That situation likely won't change until games aren't designed around consoles either. Traditional hard drives are fantastic for storage purposes, relatively reliable overall and cheap. SSDs are already in a pretty decent sweet spot price-wise and the benefits of running your operating system with one are both substantial and noticeable.

See, now you're just trying to ruin my fun.

I know there won't be much improvement beyond some initial load times, and even then it'll be minimal. That's the nice thing about a gaming rig though, I don't need a reasonable excuse for an upgrade. I won't be doing any upgrades for another 6 months or so anyway (waiting on Ivy Bridge and Kepler) so, with luck, SSD prices should improve even more by then.
