for those of you with g5's and SSD's is it really worth it? how much if anything did you notice about system response? i am toying with the idea of selling my g5 and maybe getting the quad core g5...but wanted to inquire to see if the SSD would fulfill my speed upgrade quest. O:)

If your speed requirements are limited to how fast the system boots and how quick apps start maybe so.

If your speed requirements are based on how long it takes to get your work done that require RAM and CPU processing power, then the SSD will do nothing for you.
Unfortunately, it's time to make the move to Intel.

Ive got an SSD in my Power Mac G5 Quad and it is really snappy, it is
definitely worth throwing one in there.
