Is an ssd really worth it?

I'm looking to build my first budget gaming/and little bit of editing computer. Is an ssd worth it or am I better off spending my money on the another part of the computer such as the CPU, cooler and mobo.

Put the money towards a better cpu/gpu. 

 

And ssd is worth the money, but not at the expense of actual performance.

if you dont have a CPU and motherboard ssd is useless but if you are going to compromise on motherboard or cpu to get a SSD ,dont just get it later.

Yes, even if the fast boot times aren't your thing, the responsiveness is incredible.  Once you own a computer with an SSD you probably wont ever want to use one without.

It depends on your budget.  Just like djdowski said, if you have to sacrifice in-game performance for faster boot and shut down times, it is not worth it.  If you have an extra $50, or can switch some components around to make an extra $50, nothing will give you a "new computer, money well spent feeling" quite like an SSD.  The boot times and overall snappy performance of your operating system is really really nice.

Well this thread is really off topic lol. My budget is about $1000.

Short answer: Its usually worth it.

Somewhat longer answer: Since you're on a budget, you could try a hybrid HDD/SSD for performance and capacity.

Other answer: Though, since you're budget is only a $1000, a better graphics card might be worth the trade off of a HDD.

If you need more real information and not a bunch of random posts with guesses and unsubstantiated hot air so to speak, read up here: http://www.thessdreview.com/ssd-guides/

 

If you read that and still have questions on whether its worth it, lease close your account.

I roll with sigs off so I have no idea what you're advertising.
