Upgrade to a Solid State Hard drive...should I?
Posted on 2014-01-12
I have a Dell T5500 Precision that I use for CAD station that has the below listed specs. The question I have is will I gain enough in performance to upgrade this machine to a solid state hard drive, or I am just better off buying a new workstation. Is this machine worth investing the money into? If so, what are my options for a SSD that are compatible with this machine?
