Pretty sure it's because Windows 7 has much better support for SSD, so W7 things normal HDDs are sh*tteh

Same on my seagate barrucuda 250 GB.
Only installed it yesterday. So far all seems okay, although i had to hunt for drivers for my wireless network card ( Abit Airpace ).
Never tried Vista, but so far liking Win7 over XP.
Now for some gaming...

Is there a frame rate cap in Win 7 ?
Noticed Freelancer ( i know it is old, but still one of the best space games ) wont go above 75fps ( 1600x1200, 8xAA, 16xAf etc ). In XP i get 170+fps. Same settings in NVidia CP etc.

Refresh rate? Vsync?

Checked all of those. Hence the question. Exactly the same settings as under XP... but 100fps less ( using fraps ).... ???? ( BTW still on CRT ).
