I put OS and Games on the drive, which is why I am currently running out of space and need a larger SSD

Putting your OS on it will not only lower boot time, but it will make windows faster in general usage too.

Having your games on will give you a major advantage in loading times and will increase performance as its just one less thing to wait for.

I order my gear from US, and the 240gb OCZ revo drive is only 370 pounds so its tempting for the 1500MBS read speed.
But still, I think ill hold back, I leave my pc running 24hrs so it wont help with startup times, windows is already as responsive as it gets really, and most my file transfers are over the network to my media PC. Only advantage to me would be in loading games, which is tempting, but dont think its worth the extra money yet, besides I have some quick seagates in raid anyway, so my disk drive is a bit quicker than normal already.

Mine is purely for pr0n! Every second counts! I do agree with you that at the moment they are some-what superfluous considering the size and money.
