    It would be nice to see an end to the good old HDD but you cant really beat them at the moment for TB storage.

    SSD will only get cheaper and more wide spread hopefully, all we need now is a faster interface than SATA III and a reason to manufacture faster RAM, maybe that will be DDR4.

    Why do we need to go faster than SATA3?

    Most of the time, you won't even be saturating SATA2 bandwidth, maybe with a RAID array you might hit the limit of SATA2.

    Ram speeds do so little outside of benching if you have 1600mhz ram its going to be enough for years and years to come.

    No program can use the bandwidth offered by ddr2 let alone ddr3. Most program's can't even use more than 2gb of ram, the actual amount of 64 bit program's could be counted on one hand.

    Sata 2 is easily maxed with a high spec ssd.

    Pcie x4 offers alot more bandwidth and is the future for super high speed ssds. We will not likely we sata 4 till ssds are widespread at hd level prices for tbs of them.

    there's a performance difference between sata2 and sata3 with ssds, don't know if there's a real-world performance difference but the benches show it

    With the exception of media editing programs and games if a program needs more than 2GB of RAM then its a case of poor optimization.

    Yeah but besides media editing programs, browsers, and games, what have the romans done for us?!
