Windows 7 doesn't always do what it is supposed to do. Read through this Tutorial on SSDs, there is a lot of good advice there for you.

You are correct there, Pre Fetch & Super Fetch should be turned off, as should Disc Defragmenting. Windows usually turns off Defrag but it's a good idea to check to be sure.
