Default Hybrid drives and Samsung SSD?

I am planning a new PC and will go for a SSD boot drive, probably a Samsung Evo. I understand that the Pro version is the best, but how close does the Basic version come in performance terms?

For media I am considering a hybrid drive. Is this a good idea, or should I stick to a regular HD?

Hybrid drives only hold the last 8G of used data in the memory and are really only useful if you are constantly opening and closing programs as per a system drive
I have one in my laptop and it is certainly faster than the original 5400rpm drive, but I am considering upgrading it to an SSD and Win 7(64) it only has Win 7(32)
You would be better off adding a RAID system, I run 3 of 2x2G (4G) disk raid on my system and is more than adequate
I had three sets for Multicam one raid set for each camera but have found I can run all three from a single raid without problems
Stay with a normal drive system but SSD for system, great
