Over the years I have gained trust in a few of these sites. Some reviews at time seem to me that they are bought and paid for on other sites. It is kind of like Brand names one gains trust in. Like many I belong to different forums for different reasons. I focus on reliability as my number one object. The reliability of brands I have used and the forums and their members. That is why I belong to this forum. Having the fastest computer today that doesn't work tomorrow doesn't impress me. Things about the new Hybrid I have question about are; can you defrag it or should you because it is solid state and disc all built into one? Will it play well with a ssd? If the hybrid is in raid with a plain hdd will it slow down to the plain hdd their for you wouldn't be able to use what you have paid for. I have ordered a intel ssd 120gb because intel is a brand I trust for reliability. When I do order another hard drive (non ssd) it will be a Seagate because I trust them. In today's computers the hdd is the slowest of all the read/wrigh components so a ssd is a wise buy if one is trying to speed things up. If one is doing spread sheets, Excel, checking your email and things like that it would be a wast of money IMHO. To answer the OP question; my understanding is when gaming you will see a lot more speed in your games. Check out your favorite Gaming sits and forums. You will notice on these sites it's all about speed and gaming. Notice I have not suggested which sites to go to, that is your choice. I have made mine that is why I am a member here. I have just ordered #2000.00 in parts for a new computer. I researched for over a month (many many hours) and I decided in a ssd from intel. Keep doing your research and don't get in a hurry.
Please let us know what you decide.
That was smart. See I honestly never heard of a hybrid, personally i would (if ssd's are worth it) buy the best ssd i can afford,because,if it's not gonna be a good make or perform way better than lets say a normal 6gig a second hardrive,then it seems like a waste of money, so I agree, Lots of research before purchase,thats why i posted this, Where better to get the best advice then from the friendly crew at windows 7 forums

Are you planning on adding a second screen to extend the desktop? If so, then you can use any monitor that you like.
If you were wanting to run 3 or more screens for gaming, like Eyefinity or Surround, then you would want all of them to be the same resolution.
they can be different resolutions, but the monitor group will be set to the lowest resolution monitor.
Example, I have 3 screens, 1440x900, 1920x1080, 1920x1080. When I use Eyefinity, I am limited by the 1440 monitor so my group will be 4320x900 (1440x3=4320), which means that my middle and right screen won't be running in their native resolutions which lowers image quality.

Running in Extended Desktop mode, each screen runs at it's native resolution and games will run on my middle screen.

Whether a ssd is worth it is ones own choice. If for what ever reason one wants to speed up a computer and one has a fast new CPU and RAM and a woop assss video card the next step is ssd. Speed always cost money in cars, boats, plains or a computer. The choice is up to whom ever is spending the money. I or nobody else can tell the OP if it worth it. It's his/hers choice. You either need speed or want speed, either way it cost more money.

Thanx so much, so I can get a nother screen,because i wan't to play on one,but internett and music on the other,and both will be 1920x1080p, but what about the full 3d clock problem thing?

I wouldn't worry about the 3D clock thing. I have been using multiple screens for over 10 years and don't have any issues.
