Many folks have found that with or without TRIM SSDs slow down it depends on usage, laptop hard drives are slower and there are few laptops that support SATA III so your biggest improvement with a SSD is comparing a laptop hard drive to a SSD, given that laptops get moved while running and SSDs have no moving parts, laptops use batteries, SSDs consume less power they have lots of Pluses.
But with a desktop you can have a very fast hard drive that will be working just as well after 3 years whereas the SSD will be slowing down and have other issues.
This is not to say that everyone will, I tend to download and move a lot of files but a quick web search shows quite a few people with the same opinion, I limited my search to 1 yr since many older SSDs had real issues with slowdowns.
i'd be willing to bet the same SSD compared to a HDD will still run faster 3 years from now than the standard spin drive.
Anything released in the last year with good trim support shouldn't have this issue. i've had my Crucial M4 for a little over a year, and i haven't experienced any slowdown at all.
Its got over 7500 hours powered on, as i don't usually shut down my computers.
Still faster than any of my WD Black Drives that are in my system. i can't see how something that exceeds SATA II speeds even with decay will be slower than something that doesn't come close to maxing SATA II speeds.
sli is ths most overrated genius marketing move. It puts a lot more strain on your cpu and motherboard which can cause all kinds of problems. It's better to buy a higher tier single gfx card than sli. overclocking is a way better idea. I highly suggest you start doing it. It takes some time to learn, but ti's a tech life long skill. With overclocking, $200 cpus perform like $700 ones. anyone seroius about bang/buck performance, overclocks. It soudns riskier than it really is.
you'll get more bang/buck spending more on the gfx card vs the cpu.
for my builds, which are a bit cheaper than yours
I get a budget amd card + motherboard combo thatis overclockable
~150-200 videocard hot deal (whatever has performance)
hotdeal on 8gb memory.
Get a quality case, and cpu 600w is fine. quality case and cpu can be used with multiple builds. I won't touch a case that has smaller than 120mm fan mounts; those are too noisy.
for $800, u can squeeze intel in maybe. intel is killing amd right now,
