SSD - need help with optimizing

30gb Vertex OCZ, x64 7600 build. I tried to disable hibernation and it wasnt there anyways. With only windows, ATI drivers and the MOBO utilites I'm at 13.6 GB free.

The rest of my system specs are in my signature.

There are a couple of good articles here:

Optimize Windows For Solid State Drives Usage

and here:

Windows 7 and Optimization for Solid State Drives - Tom's Hardware

I'd look at moving the swap file and temp files as recommended.
