I bought into the hype a while back and Fry's is always happy to help. The PC is a i3 with 6GB of RAM... plain Jane Dell. I use it 96% of the time for WMC (4 tuners via HDHomeRuns) and the rest XBMC. I cloned the existing drive C (1TB) and the SSD felt a little snappier booting but afterwards I didn't notice any real difference. Not enough that my experience changed. As I would have to use the larger drive for recordings (anyway) I punted. Since I had zero performance issues prior the SSD would have had to really make a difference.
