I may have figured it out. The two stick may be in the wrong slots, see the snip from your manual. They should be in either the slots I marked in red or the ones in blue.

I find it intuitive to install RAM next to each other, board makers have other ways though.

Yeah it makes perfect sense for them to be next to each other , cant wait for my SSD now , never had an SSD before , anything i should know ? I heard stuff about setting them up in a different mode like AHCI and setting them into RAID0 etc to get the best performance out of them which im confused about

My main advice is to do a fresh install to get the most from it. Also it should be the only drive connected during the install or the boot manager can end up on a different drive. Here's some tips.

Thanks for the links , just had a look at my mobo manual and apparently my mobo only has SATA 3/GBS ports and SATA II , would that greatly effect the performance of an SSD ?

It's not likely you'd notice a difference except in a benchmark. Compared to your current setup you should see a big performance boost. The SSDs are backwards compatible to SATA 3Gbs.

So running it on SATA II and on a 3/GBPS port i should still feel a big difference yeah ?

Yes, definitely so. Since you have Intel be sure to check the Gigabyte support page for your board for any updated Intel storage driver (iastor.sys).
