damn, you guys are nuts thats what my whole system costed!! I was thinking of the addition of a solid state, not that kind though. I'm sure this has been stated already, and I haven't searched or anything so don't shoot me.. but where the price is at these days you could put together a nice compilation of ram for just system files that just dominates these speeds.

I am sure many of the members spend what may seam a ridiculous amount of money on our systems but it is what we enjoy doing. Being a GEEK is what I like, sorry to offend some others! I am by no means as skilled as many here but I do what I can with the limited knowledge I have. I just wanted to get one and play with it to see what it can do. Some people overclock but not me. Once I get this new tou I will let you know what it does!

^^No offense taken, just my initial reaction. Yes, I realize peoples spend enormous amounts of money on their systems and I appreciate it. I also take pride in getting the most bang for buck. And yes, I DO overclock...

It is my tax return gift to myself. When I get it and install it I will let you know how good it is and how much faster it is. I know it is a high cost and I really did not need it but this is something I wanted and had to try. The speeds looked unreal!
Techymike can you give us a quick review of that drive once you set it up? What it took to get it set up and running? Issues? Maybe you could create a seperate thread for the review? I'm sure many would be interested.

Thanks.

Yeah, some of those people on the OCZ forum are very high strung. I go there only for some of the good tutorials, but the discussion threads are not worth it. Also too many "fumblers" who twist and tweak for no apparent reason - sometimes even the wrong reasons.
Yup, exactly. Lots of attitude from tech support trying to "ride herd" on a group of high strung "fumblers." So may people babbling on and on about nothing that it takes hours of reading to find valuable information. The sad part is the information is in there, it's just hard to find.

I don't know, maybe I just have a bad taste in my mouth this morning after learning it appears one of my Vertex 2's from back in December is a 25 nm drive (thanks for the link sygnus21). I didn't want a smaller-than-advertised 25 nm drive, at least until the issues of OverProvisioning, design life, reliability, etc. are sorted out. It's still sealed so maybe they'll do the swap without charge. We'll see.

Tom, I would send the drive back. I am sure they will exchange it.

Yeah, but there's still the problem of discerning which drive is a 25 nand drive and which is a 34? You can't just ask the vendor to hook up the drive and see what it's formatted to.

There has to be a way to read the packaging to see what's what? That no one is telling.... yet.
