    Yes, and it's great! I have another one coming in for the HTPC as well. The prices on SSD's (especially Sandforce) just took a big drop.

    With the SSD? Well, 285 read 275 write compared to a mechanical drive is pretty good. Windows loads faster, things are snappier. The only reason I'm getting one for the HTPC is because I have no room for another mechanical drive. I'm just going to velcro it somewhere.

    the good thing about SSD is that you dont have to wait for things to start up, when windows is done loading everything is ready in 1 second or 2, that is the most awesome about it imo

    @erocker, yeah those sandforce thingies took a drop here aswell, but ill wait a bit, just got a cheap 80gig intel gen2, so that will satisfy my needs for now :D

    i have a super talent but it kept causing restarts and then it'll say BOOT MGR not present or what not, so i'll have to set it again as the first boot drive to boot up. I tried everything :(

    I'm going to install it again in my 2nd rig and give it another go with some new tips. See how that goes. I really do miss it, it's night and day difference from the drive I'm running now, it's amazing!

    So the GTX 460 killed my PSU. Wonderful. Kinda crazy since I ran a 5770 and a 5850 on that PSU. Damn NVIDIA and your power hungry cards!!! Oh I'm kidding...but it's true. Anyhoo, while I wait for a new PSU, I wedged the sucker in my main rig for PhysX.

    Who figured out it was the PSU? Had to be some kind of uber 133t genius.

    I did, I swear I did. I just have no idea where it disappeared off to. ... there, I think I fixed it now.

    I'm *not* a gamer.
