As much as I'd like to, I still haven't even bought a SSD for my desktop PC, as I simply can't justify the ridiculous cost over a (much larger) HDD.
I was like this too, but then I got an SSD. Having instant boot times, and instant response times on everything was worth it and I feel I've gotten my money back from those time savings.

The thing is, I leave my PC on 24/7, and reboots happen infrequently. So the only way an SSD would make sense for me would be to get one large enough to replace my main drive, that also has all my software and games - which means 1TB at the absolute minimum, with a 2TB making me feel more comfortable. Otherwise, there would be no benefit and it would be a waste (ie. with just my OS on a smaller drive).

A 1TB M2 drive would cost me about $300 US minimum (and they can go up to twice that), whereas I can get a 10TB (!!) HDD for about the same amount (or a 1TB HDD for $45). There's just no way. Sure, I can afford it, but I certainly can't justify it.

I'm doing what Ozmodan said (below), somewhat. I use a 256mb SSD for primary drive that does not contain a lot of software on it. I use a 512MB SSD for my secondary drive which is for games.

I keep my installed games limited to only 20 or so. But yeah, might suck if you're installing big 60gb games like Doom.

Guess they see Blizzard's strategy of catering their games to a family audience as successful enough to copy.

We know what a cert is. The question is, why does no one at your company give a fuck, to at least have set themselves a Reminder to renew the cert?

The internet has created island of anonymous people with no restrictions or consequences.

I am looking forward to the day of "internet ID" where every single person will be identified by name and address when making comments or online posts.
So... you want the Mark of the Beast...

Let me guess, you cucks are then going to remove the ability to ride rockets. If you remove that, then you do not belong in the department of game design.

Tim fly's a rocket and clears out a squad.

Yes, because here at Profit Studios, we aim for 1000% profit by charging $10 per user per additional record of data in our database that only costs us 1 cent, if not nothing at all.

Not if they're tracking you, which they are.

You're paying your attention and time to click through, while they track your--at the very least--existence. And you're getting shitty hand-outs for it.

They gotta bring in diesel "powerplant" trailers to keep all those byoc's turned on. You never invite people to the DFW area in the summer, unless you don't want them coming back, August temps will hit 100 during the day.

Yeah, will be a shitfest.

This whole thing is just lipstick on a pig.

Yeah, Timthetatman! My favorite streamer of all 300 streamers I've viewed in the past 5 years of being on Twitch.

Streamer sniper finally caught and banned by Twitch, and Tim can now enjoy play Overwatch again.
