After moving fully to SSD I can't live without them, I do still own HDD's but just for data storage.
The noise cut down is worth it also.

A side note, I use a HDD on my XP computer and it is fast. But that's because it is XP.

This thread has now inspired me to install XP on an SSD in one of my retro Pentium 4 machines.
That's going to be fun :D

For sure! :) If it lacks SATA ports, you can use a PATA <--> SATA adapter. ;)

Yes, it has two SATA ports (Intel D865GBF) and it's interesting because I've never tried this before.
*Probably way off topic, since the thread is about GPU-Z, lol.

I've never seen XP run this fast before and it was a very simple install - MBR and SATA drivers on a floppy, nice!

Yeah this is exactly the issue, no solution in that thread though. Worst case is I go back to the last working version of the CRT library
Will you lose anything reverting back?

The installer does not work due to Innosetup's design choices and is not available under Windows XP

As a sidenote for XP: everyone disable "lastaccessupdate" of the filesystem.
Filesystem writes are cached and combined into one larger write when going to disk, this won't have a significant impact on anything. Do you have any data to support this change?
