Yep, same name. I had a previous account with a high post count, but didn't have access to the e-mail address I used to set it up, and couldn't prove to the mods I was the same person, so I had to create a new account half-way through. I think it was in the summer of 2000 when I first joined, and I'd have well over 20k posts combined.

Reading the charts and graphs on the read and wright times on a SSD means very little in actual use. The fastest component one gets today that doesn't work tomorrow to me means very little. For a new user of a SSD I recommend running your system a default and watch the magic then decide whether you want to overclock.

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

I have had a 128 GB OCZ Vertex 3 for about two weeks. Not long enough to give any reliability statements, but it is a good one so far, I happen to find a one day special for $79. Their normal price is $99 I believe. You can find a good deal if you just do some searching.

Because my timing is never very good I got my Intel back in April 2011 when it wasn't on sale and it cost me $286.00. I don't seem to catch anything on sale.

^ Don't feel bad, I paid $289 for my 80GB Intel X25-M G2 when I got mine. I don't regret it at all.
