ordered the vertex 2 60gb: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227550

looking forward to getting win7 on there and maybe a game or two. wonder if putting my steam app on there would effect games at all.

i'm now an official member--running win7 on a 60gb OCZ Vertex 2. It's fast.

i did make the mistake of installing it in IDE mode rather than ACHI mode, which slowed down the drive at first. only got a WEI score of 7.1 with in IDE mode. however, with the fix found here, i was able to enable ACHI mode through BIOS without a reinstall of windows 7. WEI score is now 7.6.

http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.ph...69&postcount=1

the other issue i had was that i got BSOD's with my previous OC, and had to go to default clock speeds. working my way back up the ladder now.

install took forever because i only have the upgrade version of win7. so i had to reinstall vista, download the standalone vista SP1 x64 (which took almost 3 hours), patch to SP1, and then upgrade to win7.

I guess I should chip in here. I've been a member of the SSD club since before I was a Nvnews member. I bought my first Patriot Torqx 128Gb a year ago, and decided I liked it so much I bought a second one, cloned my system drive from the first one off onto it, and put it in a static wrapper in case the primary ever goes down. Don't wanna be without one now.

After enabling/disabling all the important "stuff" through the OS for SSDs (I don't even remember all of it.), and after having my SSD for a few weeks, my SSD is suddenly much faster. I remember that it used to reboot in about 6-10 seconds. I thought that was quick. Now, I'm seeing the "shut down" screen for a staggering 3 seconds before the system either turns off or it shuts down.

What the hell happened? That wasn't happening when I first got the drive. What's even crazier is that the statistics on the drives speed are identical, if not slightly slower than when I first got it. There's no denying it though; the drive is stupidly quick right now. I see the "Welcome" screen for all of 2 seconds, and then, the computer is at the desktop and usable. This thing is a MONSTER!!!


All I know is that I will never build another system without including an SSD ever again. I thought AMD systems were supposed to be slower compared to intel systems... not this one.

I couldn't imagine what would happen if I put two of these in a RAID array.




EDIT: Video "At the speed of SSD"

The video was taken on my crappy Samsung Rogue phone. Sorry.
