1. Re format or fresh install is always the best alternative, be sure to backup your important files, and also to use space wise, if you get a 128GB SSD you can use it for full OS and daily programs and maybe 1 or 2 games you play the most, or the current played ones, no more than that, secondary drive, your older HDD would be your personal drive to store music, videos photos and all your related items, data and other programs, SSD could be smaller in size compared to your previuos drive, but faster, thats the way i use SSD.Cheers! So when I do get the SSD and install it in, how do I make the OS run off the SSD? Would I need to reinstall the OS? Or can you just swap it over from the Hard drive?
I was also looking at the possibility of getting more ram, maybe an extra 4gb or something, if that's even worth it? Plus is there a difference in MHz of ram, mine is currently 8gb of 1333mhz, my board can support 1600mhz, or is it just a gimic?
2. for ivy bridge and sandy, 1333 and 1600 does mostly the same, i will add another identical set of 8GB for your ram, to make 16GB and take full advantage of your dual channel configuration and instructions for the processor, adding just 4 GB more will make the PC slower cause it cannot matches the dual channel memory protocol, so if possible upgrade to 16GB, matching your current 8GB with another identical set, same amount per dimm and freq!
