Default Re: The Official SSD Club

Just ordered the Intel 80GB for 194.95 at the Egg had a 20.00 dollar credit so it nets out to 174.95 for the OEM not bad and fits nicely in my 800D with the hot swap bays will install this weekend.

By the way anyone have any recommendations as to what to do first I plan on doing a fresh Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit install and this will be my first stab at an SSD drive.

I check and make sure that the firmware is current but other than that, I was just going to plug it into the first SATA port on the Rampage III and install it. Do I need to check alignment out of the box or anything else?
