Windows 7: SSD Drive

SSD Drive

Could someone point me towards the adapter I'd need to connect a SSD in my new PC? I've found what I think I might need but want to be sure. Something like this...

You don't really need anything to install an SSD drive into a desktop computer. If you want to mount it into a 3.5 drive bay..you will need a 2.5 inch to 3.5inch drive adapter.

For my SSD drive, I simply used some velcro on the drive and put the drive into some available open space in my drive cage.

I used this bracket set ( Newegg.com - OCZ OCZACSSDBRKT Solid State Drive 3.5" Adaptor Bracket - HDD Accessories ). That was for a 2.5" SSD. My 1.8" SSD I just fastened with one screw - the other holes would not lign up. But since it does not vibrate or anything, it works well. I thought that beats velcro or duck tape.

Yeah the bracket in my first post is only $9 or so and they're an Aussie company so I'll grab one
