A SSD is the 'biggest bang for the buck' investment you can make for a DAW system. There is absolutely no point in investing in 8 core server class i7 systems if they are just going to be idling while waiting for old technology HDD's to catch up!

A SSD is premium cost storage. So use both SSD and HDD strategically.

OS/apps/workspace* on the SSD
data/media storage on large HDD's

* Workspace means your current project audio. This is your high performance workspace for audio.

Running a SSD (and further, also running audio to it) lets me record all inputs to disc when I run live sound 100% error free. This flat out does not work with standard HDD's (even 7200rpm).
