I've just spilled my coffee.
http://www.rcs-rds.ro/internet-digi-net/fiberlink?t=internet-fix&pachet=digi_net_fiberlink_1000
1000 mbps for only 14-18 dollas per month, TV INCLUDED. WHEN DID ROMANIA DO DIS? :OOOO
I can't wait for my contract with the current ISP to end. Also, my current ISP(Romtelecom) will have a rebrand! Bye Romtelecom, welcome Deutsche Telekom.
Oh and a reminder, I pay 24$ for 12 mbps per month(Phone included, back in the time we needed a phone to use nets, even if we don't use the phone)

Yeah, optics are pretty awesome. GPON can make up to 1gb/s.

The question is - I can barely imagine why would you need more than 350mbps at home , unless you want to host a little game server... no, stil much XD
Don't get me wrong, but the idea of downloading a 9GB game in a minute...I could install my entire game collection in 1 hour or so.

Yeah, but you don't have place on SSD for all of them at same time XD

No, but a HDD's Write rate is fast enough to keep up with that. SSDs aren't needed.

Well, I get up to 170 mb/s write rate. I could've gone for an SSD, but I need a lot of space.
Actually, this PC is overkill, it's way too powerful xD.

SSD Cache option then. Get the storage space of HDD with speed of SSD. I added a Synapse onto my tower awhile back. Gives a nice speed boost. However, there is a drawback. Being things tend to need to load once into the cache drive for you to get the speed boost. Course in games that load often or have areas with huge load times, its great. In SWTOR, Corellia has one of the most insane load times I've seen in prolly a decade. Close to 5 minutes and my system isn't slow. SSD cache cuts it in half. Its still long but you can't go and use the potty or get a snack anymore.

I have five seconds from start button to password screen. Can be 2 if I enable quick boot in bios.
SSD canche is good for laptops but not for towers. You can't play all 85 games in your library at same time, right? My SSD contains system and games i want to work fast, and I easily reinstal everything I want, and with my speeds it's just the time to get a snack or make coffee =)
