    I was looking at the OCZ Agility 3. I don't know what the deal is with them, they're about £100 for a 60GB one, but they have one of the best read/write speeds I've seen for a <£100 SSD.

    OCZ 60GB Agility 3 SSD - SATA-III - Read 525MB/s W...

    I'm waiting for someone to say they're crap as they seem too good to be true. I'm unsure of how different they are to the Vertex 3 (that everyone's raving about), but I don know they both use the same Sandforce.

    Scratch that, Freedom's looks better for the money...

    OCZ Solid 3: 20,000 IOPS
    OCZ Agility 3: 50,000
    OCZ Vertex 3: 60,000

    I'd go for the Agility 3, pending a look at the Corsair F-series.

    I've been waiting to get an SSD, so I need this discussion :laugh:

    Over in Japan, theres many people in bands that dress like that. Its a fashion otherwise known as Visual Kei

    Just like goths like to dress in black etc etc.

    Am I right in thinking you'll lose TRIM if you do that?

    This was an interesting read.

    HUZZARH!

    I managed to resurrect my GF's rig.

    :D

    In the process though, the DVI port on my Viewsonic has decided to stop working. After googling et al, I've discovered that I'm not the only one. It's a very common issue. Guess I'm lucky to have had the monitor working flawlessly for 8 years now.

    I have a few things to try; one is to modifiy the DVI's EDID but that's a major freakin' ball ache, another is to use a Dell utility that does all that for me. Apparently it's worked for some so I'm gunna give that a shot in the mouth. If all else fails, I guess VGA to DVI will have to do.

    :(

    same thing happend to me with an old Iiyama Prolite screen. one day the DVi port just decided to stop working. googling the problem turned up a few hits. but no one had a solution to the problem so I deep six'd it and bought a samsung monitor which i had for about a year before the back light on it died and then i upgraded to this NEC i have now which has been working solidly for the last 2 years.

    Its crazy when you think about how long youve kept some hardware going.

    My parent's Dell screen is still working, and its almost 6 years old already. I think screens last the longest of all the parts out there, maybe except for cases.

    @Freedom is that a PG Strike Freedom head?
