Until SSDs will finally allow a number of rewrites of the same order of magnitude of what mechanical HDDs offer, my favoured solution will always be a larger RAM, good ol' HDDs and possibly an additional SSD if OS and apps allow to use it mainly for data that are rarely written and rewritten, but very often read.
SSD could be a godsend for ivery often written data too, but this use would kill the drive quickly, it could speed up a lot swap for example, but for now this use must be avoided, better, and even faster, reducing need for swap by increasing RAM.
Anyhow, using SSD to store read-only level files aand app and system libraries can already be a fast and efficient application.
