A good partitioning program for XP is EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition, you can get it from Cnet's www.download.com, just type in partition master in the search bar at the top of their site. Now I've never done this with an SSD so I don't know if it would work or even if it's advisable so just a cation there if this sounds like something you'd like to try.

he could also get a 2nd hdd and install win xp on 1 drive then win 7 on the other, then use his bios to pick the drive that he wants to boot, this is the way that i have my system set up. i like it this way because you dont mess with MBR's and you can use your full disk for each OS

The CPU/NB speed really depends on what speed you run the CPU at, for instance a CPU @ 3.2Ghz would need a CPU/NB speed of 2000Mhz to give enough headroom to prevent bottle necking and a CPU @ 6.0Ghz would need a CPU/NB of 3800Mhz, so if you plan to run at 4.0/4.2Ghz you will need at least 2600Mhz. The higher the CPU/NB frequency the more bandwidth you will get but the downside is it introduces instability necessitating increases in the CPU/NB voltage, it depends on whether you are prepared to risk the extra voltage you will be putting through the IMC in the chip and the increased heat it generates, any increase in frequency on an electrical circuit generates more heat even before you increase the voltage. I personally always use G.Skill ram as I have never had problems with it and it has a lifetime guarantee. In this board I am running 16gig of G.Skill RipjawsX F3-17000CL9Q-16GBXLD @ 9-11-9-28-40-1T-1.65v @ 2133Mhz, the bandwidth in AIDA64 is 34,133GB/s.

thank you for your reply.
i am aware of the dangers of overclocking-been doing it for years.
i have used G Skill ram, always been good to me, looking at the cl9 1866 (2x4gig).
i have also used Mushkin (my favorite) Corsair, OCZ etc...
most of the reason for the upgrade/sidegrade is because i am tired of messing with the 955 and want to try something else.
i am also helping a good friend out by selling him my 955 and 1600 ram for a $100 total.

I'm still running at the exact same OC I was at before just fine with 0813... I'm also using a very different CPU than you.
