BTW, that case is over $1000+
Quoted from Wiki...
"Solid-state drives are especially useful on computers that already have the maximum amount of supported RAM. For example, some computer systems built on the x86-32 architecture can effectively be extended beyond the 4 GB limit by putting the paging file or swap file on an SSD. Owing to the bandwidth bottleneck of the bus they connect to, SSDs cannot read and write data as fast as main RAM can, but they are far faster than any mechanical hard drive. Placing the swap file on an SSD, as opposed to a traditional hard drive, can therefore provide a significant performance increase."
Its still early days but these drives will make a big difference to the people limited to 32bit operating systemsEdited by Joeking78 - 7/9/08 at 7:33pm
