SSD, depends on what you use it for, i use it as a boot drive so i install windows 7 on it, it'll increase boot time and shut down time as well as yes the operations of whatever you have on the SSD will be quicker, so say you have a game installed on it, it will boot the game a lot faster than a regular hdd as well as load it a lot faster less wait time in between cut scenes

They're two links to ram the snipers (the expensive ones) and the viper they still have tight timings for 75 usd. He's paying in euros too. And yes ssd caching is using the ssd as a cache. A cache is a very fast piece of memory. But since its so fast it's expensive. Normal hard drive drives have 32 or 64 mb of cache. When you add an ssd your adding gigabytes. Add a 60 gb ssd. You have 1000x the cache but 100 usd out of pocket. Now the technology isn't perfected yet. And it's on the more expensive motherboard....

I just realised the biostar isn't available in france and seeing as the asrock is so expensive i wanted to check if there was no alternative, but i will be willing to pay the asrock seeing as it has so many different slots and that's what i'm looking for.

EDIT: don't forget i have a medium size case.....just saying this for myself since ic an't seem to know the sizes which fit inside..
