Not sure. I have a couple spare 640s laying around and only have a laptop, so I'm probably not getting an SSD, although I would like on.

 

Then think about buying some external HDDs.

None. I might get an SSD if technology envolves, become actually reliable and prices get a bit lower.

I bought external enclosures for my two spare 640s and spare 400.

Both.

I have a 6-7 years old 500gb hdd on my gaming rig that I want to replace with a 1tb hdd and a 120gb ssd for OS, don't know if I'll get both at the same time, but one will come on Christmas for sure.

For me it depends. Right now I am waiting until Black Friday or Christmas to see if I can score some vertex 4 or samsung 840 pro drives for cheap. I am either going to get 1 512GB SSD or two 256 GB ssd for raid 0 (which ever is cheaper). My goal is to have 1TB of SSD storage by the end of this year. I am quickly running out of space on my current SSDs, and I would really like to just be completely done with mechanical hard drives.

 

However, the mechanical drives that I do have are starting to show signs of failure. So I may have to get some new cheap HDDs, but again, my hope it to go all SSD.

They are plenty reliable as it stands, and I am semi expecting to see the next price drop happen in the winter months.
