I'm assuming the 480GB SSD is your only drive. How full is it now?

What do you mean by you can't turn off an SSD? What do you mean by the 480GB is not working out?

it has 78.4 gigs left of 480. it freezes and takes 2 minutes to start. I have checked folders etc and I do not find where the gig's have gone to. this seems to be the answer..

from another forum.."To answer your question, you should leave the power option to High Performance and never turn off your SSD. therwise, there may be a performance decrease and TRIM/Garbage Collection won't be able to do its job by keeping your SSD optimized and functioning.

I wouldn`t worry about it if you`re buying a 1 TB ssd, just clean install windows on that and you want have any issues.

Then get your data off the 480 GB, then format it and it will be fine.

When you do the install, just make sure the power plugs are disconnected from any other drives you have connected to the MB and make sure the new ssd is connected to sata port #1

If you don`t have a dvd installer, you can download a W7 Pro Iso file from here to create one.

And this program works great to burn the Iso to dvd. Burn it at the slowest possible speed.

Yes, SSD's are new up to date technology. But they are still very expensive.
I don't see any gain in storing data on a SSD.
I do have a 128 G SSD with Win 7 and Lubuntu on it and there is still a lot of space on it.
I have a 1 T HDD for data. I moved \Users to D: using Kari tutorial (sysprep).

Works great.

I would buy a HDD from WD, not a SSD. (Yes, I know WD bought SanDisk)
I would buy a SSD from Memory Makers
