My First SSD...Intel 330

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Even though I had the BF Vertex deal staring at my face, I went with the Intel drive. No offense to those who got the vertex you got an insane deal, but I have had to rma every ocz product I have owned and just one rma of my boot drive isn't worth it.

I upgraded to Ivy Bridge around halloween, and it was much faster than my propus rig, but I could tell my mechanical drive was holding it back, so three weeks later I pulled the trigger on an ssd and all I can say is ivy bridge without an ssd is poop compared to with one.

I did a clean install of vista, installed my antivirus and other random utilities, and world of warcraft and puts me at around 62 gb used. Not too bad. My steam library will be staying on the mechanical as wow occupies 99% of my game time atm. I haven't benched it yet, guess I will when I get outta work.
