I was pondering this as I was looking at SSDs. Would it be true that no matter how much RAM and size of your HD, the performance degradation IS a constant as the amount of data stored progressively increases. Ergo, it would always be optimal to be lopsided in the amount of RAM to HD size ratio.

Does this thought have any substance???

No. Performance degration is much more complex issue. On SSD, performance is quite constant unless SSD is nearly full. On HDD performance depends on where on disc data is stored.
