I think its time to move over to SSD, questions?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I was gonna wait til SSD's get cheaper and larger but I'm eying this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233181

So my question is, when moving over do I have to reinstall EVERYTHING? Drivers, programs, steam, etc.

anything else I need to know before moving over?

Okay, I personally would go with intel cause their SSD's do have a lower failure rate than its competition.

Similar price (somewhat cheaper), same size, lower failure rate.
And yes you will have to reinstall everything as to my knowledge.
And I'm waiting for Intel to release a 1TB SSD before I go to SSD's.

true, but the one I am looking at is native sata 3 which is around 550mb read and 510mb write, while the one you suggested is less than half that and it sucks that I have to reinstall everything but I'm sure it's worth it.

Okay. Don't come crying to me if it fails then. (Ripping on Corsair I know. But no company has beaten Intel's failure rate.)

wow... youll be waiting a while im sure.
:O

i want an ssd, good luck op, ssd's seem to be the new huge thing.

Intel already has a 600GB ssd out, i'm sure 1TB won't be too far behind.

To the OP I don't think you absolutely have to renistall everything, but it is recommended. And going to an SSD is definitely worth the trouble.
