Next question is around SSD drives. How big of a difference does it make? I read about boot up times, but what if you keep the HTPC on 24/7...does it make a difference in usage? I am playing with funds, and trying to figure out compromises, as I can't pick up everything at once. I am debating getting 2 of the 2 TB drives to house all of my movies, and maybe adding a SSD later, or not at all. Am I correct in figuring about 40 bluray movies per TB? Also, would you go with the G540 and be able to add in more things, like the SSD and the extra hard drives, or is it better to go with the better CPU, the I3 and forgo the SSD?
I know, a lot of questions, but you guys are so helpful.
