i need an 8gb (or maybe 16gb if i eventually go to vista ultimate?) drive as a permanent c: drive for my media center pc. all of the media will be on a raid1 array and would like to keep the OS on a totally seperate drive. at the same time, i don't want to spend $300+ on an SSD. how feasible would it be to use just a fast USB stick or CF card? i know SSD's have wear leveling, but has anyone started to wear out their flash media? boot speed wouldn't really be an issue since i mainly use standby.
