Hi guys, I'm looking at getting a solid state drive to improve speed on my Mac Tower. Mainly looking to speed up photo editing. My game plan would be to install the boot drive and applications on the SSD. But with my workflow it would be impractical to have the image files themselves on the SSD (I have many hard drives that I plug in to an eSata bay.) My question is: Will the SSD be a usefull increase in performance if the media is not actually on it? In other words.... Is the performance mostly about the application and OS being on the SSD, or is it about the data itself. I figure that this could be a useful question for many people, but if you're interested in my specifics: I'm on a 2006 MacPro. 2x2.66 HHz Dual-Core Intel and 16Gigs of Ram. My thought is that a $400 SSD might keep me on this tower for another year or so instead of upgrading the whole system right now. Thanks for your input!
