Hopefully this is a quick question. Will an SSD (Vertex 2, $200) improve HTPC performance? I'm finding Media Portal is fast, but not as responsive as I wish. Going into Samba shares takes ~800ms or so, or a noticeable pause before playing it. I don't shut it down. Suspends take ~5 seconds and resumes take about the same. Video/Audio quality is perfect. It's a Gigabyte HTPC Motherboard with 4850E with 4GB memory running Windows 7 64bit and Media Portal 220.127.116.11.
