As for the SSD, my fiance got an one when he rebuilt his PC and he loves it. If you're going for speed, it's definitely worth it.

As far as the SSD, performance wise, using it as the OS/programs disk, you'll boot faster and load programs quicker. It will not do anything to make editing faster unless you use it as your storage disk.

As far as noise, your case and PSU fans are going produce more noise then the hard drive. For my OS disk I am using a WD Velociraptor (140gb) and two 1tb WD Caviar Blacks in a mirrored raid configuration for editing/storage.

I don't recommend using your hard drives as a drum set.

What are your computer specs?
