I was looking for a SSD and now found it. I will be needing help soon.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hey folks

 

I will be importing an SSD from USA to Turkey, Now i can not bring anything that is worth over 95ish US dollars because it will get stuck in the Customs and i need to do few things to clear it, but anything below 95 is acceptable.

 

Obviously we are talking about a 60gb SSD.

How is this for instance?

 

Note : If the price of an SSD is below 95 after a rebate, thats a NO GO.

 

Thank you.

Thank you for the response.

 

Although geographically Turkey is in both Europe and Asia, we are not in the European Union so prices here are more expensive.

 

a 60gb SSD is around 150 bucks in here. cant find it cheaper.

 

The corsair one looks good but it has a rebate. Although the price is still good before the rebate, i might pass it

 

Crucial one looks just right, but i never heard of the brand.

 

How good is that Crucial SSD?

 

Is it fast enough? is it the latest technology? 

 

See i dont know much about SSDs but i will learn.

Wow so much info

 

I will definitely read these in depth.

 

I thought all i had to do when getting an SSD was, installing it on my motherboard and case. Format my old HDD. go to UEFI and make the SSD primary or something like that and just install Windows 7. But it seems there is more to it.

lol, let me simplify it for ya.

  1. Get drive.
  2. Install in case wherever you want. (no drive bay needed btw.)
  3. Connect the power
  4. Connect the SATA data cable to the SSD and the first port of your mobo's native chipset -> Intel SATA 6Gb/s port 0/1
  5. Disconnect all drives from your system besides your SSD and CD-ROM
  6. Boot up the PC
  7. Go into the UEFI and set the SATA mode to AHCI (or RAID if you are going to set up an array later)
  8. Set overclock to stock if it isn't already
  9. Set boot priority to CD-ROM or USB depending on the media you are going to use.
  10. Save changes and exit
  11. You will now restart and boot off the disk
  12. Follow my "Configure a drive using a BIOS/UEFI motherboard and MBR format:" section
  13. Then when the OS is finally installed and you hit desktop start at the "Immediately after installing Windows:" section for optimization and post OS install set up with drivers and such.


Then move on to anything else you like.

Thank yo SO much for this quick quide. Although i will read your other guides in detail, this one pretty much sumed it up for me

 

7-) I will be installing my 1TB HDD later than. So i have to choose Raid?

 

Also how can i format my current HDD, i want to set my SDD as my C driver, i watched your tutorial video about configure a drive using BIOS motherboard, so what i understand is that when i follow those steps, my SSD will be partition C right?
