SSD's were not just made for "execution"... they are made for storage as well... the issue with SSD used to be the cost per GB... but now you are able to find deals with $1/GB or less... so using a 256GB SSD for trading and storing your trading data is no longer an issue... personally, I use two SSD's and 2xSATAs.... 1 SSD for the OS (128GB) another one for Critical Data (256GB or 128GB) and a pair of mirrored big sata drives (3TB+ each).... my C:\Users\USERNAME is on the second SSD... and I use the SATA as archives and backups...
all my computers boot within 30-45 seconds even when I do post...
oh, the trading computer is dedicated... nothing else but trading stuff in it... I dont even browse the web with it given it has no AV or FW software...
