ah yes, the SSD desire Fortunately, the way most Windows stuff prefers to be on C: (especially Steam), I've been pushed slightly away from it (if there is a way to make an SSD the boot drive but for an 'old fashioned' HDD to pretend it's C:, please don't tell me as then I'll be tempted )

Biggles, I have 4 SSDs. I run the OS and programs from the SSD and put all user files on a traditional hard drive. I don't game, but most gamers put their games on a traditional hard drive. It would depend on how many games you have, if there is space on the SSD you could put them there, but can also put them on the data drive.

My wee WEI...

Hello All,

Like a lot of people who have a mechanical drive, my score is limited by it at 5.9. My next upgrade is an SSD for boot-up and another 1 TB WD Caviar Black to run in a Raid 0 to boost performance a little.

An SSD will boost your disk scores and help with your restart times. However, I don't believe a raid array will be necessary unless you just want one. I have an SSD for my OS and programs and all user files are on a WD 1TB FAEX. You will not notice any difference in response times for your user files. But, as long as you have everything load at startup you will still have slower restart times. With an SSD restart will be much faster but still slower than optimum. Also, with an SSD it is not necessary to load everything at startup. The SSD will open them as needed almost instantly.

Update: Now this is epic. The reason I bought this GTX 560Ti to begin with is because I heard they OC so well they perform as well as GTX 570's. These things are just....epic. I managed, with very little Voltage increase, to reach GTX 570 scores in 3DMark11 and Unigine Heaven benchmarks! I saved 'exactly' $103!

Amazing, 7.9's with a $230 card, which is meant to be entry to the mainstream. Nv really nailed it with these cards.

Note: I was actually able to reach 1Ghz on the core and 2Ghz on the Shader clock with 1.11 VDDC, perfectly stable and no cooling issues! Though I backed off because it just wasn't necessary. This is my office rig, just wanted to be able to game on it.

Totally agree with you, overclocks like a dream!

I think it hits 7.9 wei at around 950mhz, had mine up to 1ghz but like you backed it down as not needed right now.

I seem to have had issues with mine playing Dirt3 but after alot of messing around it now appears to be working fine with some older drivers.

Great card!

I've got to say, I am rather happy with my desktops scores atm (though it would have been nice for those pesky 7.8's to hit 7.9 - That's just the OCD talking ha).

Great scores. With scores like that, I wouldn't worry about the 7.8's.
