you shouldn't need to re-install windows as far as I know.

I'm not sure about the prices but best SSDs are as follows...

Vertex 4 <-- question about OCZ QA/reliable still...needs more testing and time. Feel risky?
Plextor M3 Pro >= Corsair Performance Pro

Those are the top 3 SSDs...google prices and compare. I went with Corsair Performance Pro. I don't like OCZ...and Plextor was $85 more for me (though it is very slightly better than Corsair).


If you want bang for buck..maybe wait for Crucial M4 256gb to hit $199 again...but even at ~$220/230..it's hard to beat.

But in performance how fast is the Plextor M3 Pro compared to the Corsair Performance Pro?

I'm reading that TRIM is not very good with the OCZ Vertex 4. Problems for that drive are starting to appear now.
