Windows 7: SSD is a MUSt for me from now on.

SSD is a MUSt for me from now on.

I have been building a few PC's over the last few months and ive been using small Gb (60 or 64) SSD Drives and the speed and performance gain is unexplainable!! So sweet so fast and smooth!

I did an older system with of all things a PC Chips motherboard ( i know old school huh?) an AMD 2.1Ghz dual core and 1.5gb ram and it ran super sweet, no lagging or dragging or waiting for ever for it to do things.
Now i just finished a Wipe and reinstall on a system with way better specs
(Core 2 Extreme Quad Core CPU Q6850 @ 3.00GHz and with only 3gb Corsair SLI ram) and a 300Gb sata drive and even though its still fast it seems choked to me, no where near as crisp and smooth as the much slower older system that was also starving for ram.

So as i think about this being an AMD guy i wonder is it just the intel CPU? is it just the Sata drive? Maybe its because i have 3Gb SLI ram (had 4 but one stick is unstable) that is NOT running in SLI Dual Channel mode?

Anyhow just thought i would mention this and see what kinda responce or ideas others may have here??

No matter what it is im still sticking with SSD drives from now on no matter what!! i love that with use of the tutorials here on W7F im able to make my ssd systems boot in 22 seconds or less and shut down in 2-3 seconds,,, so cool!
2 pics 1st one is the PC Chips System 2nd is the intel

A ssd is the single most transformational addition one can add to almost any system.

I went to add a ssd to an older but still good laptop only to find it was the old style pata type drive so my 64gb sata had to be used elsewhere. If it had gone in it would have been a huge speed increase.

i agree,, you could probably make some good old lappies quite a bit faster and more efficent

Any room for one of these? , i never tried to mock it up in a laptop but i wanted to, i was just going to get an adapter like this http://www.microcenter.com/product/381129/25_SATA_to_IDE_(PATA)_Drive_Adapter and see if it would still fit all of it in the HDD bay..
Heres another one here:

I see some say Sata to IDE so that would be backwords, it would have to go from IDE to sata unless they work either way.

Unfortunately no room for any adapters.

Dang that stinks,,,, im not sure but i guess since the lappie would still technically be an IDE/pata it may not make much difference.
