you guys with the desktops make me jealous at times! I am just a 1 drive laptop. Although when I dock my laptop at home I use an external spinner via USB 3.0 that is a blast compared to 2.0!

I run 1 laptop with an 80GB Intel which is 60% empty. The wife uses it and she keeps all her data on sticks. Just bought some more 16GB sticks on Black Friday ($15 a piece). But a USB3 spinner would do well too.

My Intel X25-V 40GB access times are 0.092 ms Read and 0.076 ms Write.

Info from AS SSD.

they're also giving away a free game to sweeten the deal here - which happens to be my fave buying site anyway, and i do like games. it's a shame that games are so big, with all that multimedia content goodness...

i'm going to have to seriously lighten my new install, as i've currently got 45 gigs in my steam folder alone! which is making a bigger drive look more attractive - why hasn't intel/oc.uk got a 60 gig drive available? oh i wish i had more money!

i'll be following Kari's advice re moving the users folder which will lighten the load a little, i don't use hibernation, and i guess it's time to read seriously all the other ssd threads...oh, i love upgrading!

at the moment i'm using a 1tb spinner, and i'm wondering how to best use it in conjunction with the ssd. obviously i'll be keeping my data on it, and big bloaty games - yes i'm looking at you, dirt2, with your near 11 gigs etc. it's the big games that will mostly benefit from an ssd, but also use it all up!

is it best to keep my big hdd all as one big terrabyte partition, or do you recommend i keep my large games, movies, and other data on seperate partitions? is there any real benefit to keeping big movie files on its own partition with bigger data blocks/allocation unit sizes? what about swap file? it will be easier to defragment smaller partitions, but is it really worth it?
Mickey,

Great choice, the X25-V is a fast SSD.

The access time is the most noticable benefit for SSDs.

As for the other questions, I agree with Wishmaster and whs on every topic.

Let us know if you have any questions and how your new speed demon is running
