RE: So I'm getting an SSD
You'll need a storage drive if you don't have one. If installing on an existing PC without the parts they came with, you might need an extra set of SATA cables for the additional drive.

It's all done automatically by Windows 7 when you install it on a SSD, so you've basically got nothing to do Smile

Really? Nothing? What do you think my boot times with an i5 2500k will be? I've got a 120gb intel 320 series retail one (Best buy was having an AMAZING sale)

15-20 seconds from powering up to the desktop, most likely.

RE: So I'm getting an SSD
You need to re-check the model#. The ones from this list have good reviews. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductLis...gb&x=0&y=0

RE: So I'm getting an SSD
Intel SSDs are amongst the most reliable SSDs available on the market. The 320 series was plagued by a bug that would reduce capacity to 8MB ago, which explains most bad reviews, so just make sure to update it to the latest firmware.

RE: So I'm getting an SSD
I knew that Intel was within the .2% mark of failure but everyone makes a bad drive right? I don't know but I've figured out that this one is mine http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6820167051
