Maybe then I should look for a SATA II SSD instead. I know nothing about Firmware. I'd rather get a SSD that plugs in my mobo and works with no hassles.
I just went and did a PSU power check for my mobo. Pretty sure it was a Asus site. It told me I should have at least a 800 Watt. PSU. Mine is a : Ultra Xfinity Dual Rail Technology 600 Watt. ATX. So I checked out This PSU : Corsair CMPSU-800G Gaming Series GS800 800W Power Supply - 800 Watts, ATX, SLI Ready, 140mm Fan, Tri-color LEDs. I've also ordered a AMD Phenom IIx4 955 Quad Core CPU. I'm also thinking about getting Windows 7 Pro. 64bit. So maybe getting the new PSU wouldn't be a bad Idea. What do you think ?

I just went to the Crucial web. site and the SSD, "Crucial CT064M4SSD2 m4 2.5" Solid State Drive - 64GB, SATA 6Gb/s". is for my motherboard. According to they're search It of compatible SSD's for my Asus M2N32 SLI Deluxe motherboard. So I'm hoping it's the right one. I haven't ordered yet.
I think first I need to know about my PSU and if I need to upgrade it before anything.

I couldn't get that Calculator site to work. So I tryed this one: eXtreme Power Supply Calculator Lite. Punched in my mobo with a AMD Phenom IIx4 955 and all my info and it said. Minimum psu 577watt. maximum 627watt.
So hopefully my PSU is good enough for the upgrades I want to do on my mobo.
Thanks for the info.

SATA-2 vs SATA-3. You make a good argument in that people that don't feel comfortable flashing the firmware on their drives might want to be cautious. But the performance gains are so significant. And since you demonstrate the capability to do all the these upgrades, the idea of burning a CD and booting the machine using it isn't all that hard to do. Likewise I don't think you will be challenged clearing the CMOS by using the jumper and removing the battery. The fact of the matter is, SSDs are sophisticated devices that have microcontrollers on board that need to be periodically updated to fix bugs.

Believe me, it isn't going to be that much tougher than getting that 955 running. If for some reason you can switch that to a 965 or higher without too much added cost, consider doing that.

If you can, I suggest a 120GB drive. This will give you some buffer even if you continue to use your spinner drives. BTW, by selecting the boot priority of the different drives in BIOS, you can switch from Windows 7 to XP as you wish. I have that capability now, but frankly I never use XP anymore.

If your 600W PSU can run your system now, it may be able to do okay with the added parts, but you're probably right on the edge. If you do decide on a new PSU, I suggest at least 750W. If you can afford a modular cord design, you will like that better as it keeps the inside of the case tidier.

I'm looking at these PSU's : Corsair CMPSU-800G Gaming Series GS800 800W Power Supply - 800 Watts, ATX, SLI Ready, 140mm Fan, Tri-color LEDs. $114.99 Plus S/H Or This : Cooler Master RS850-AMBAJ3-US Silent Pro M 850W Power Supply - ATX, Modular, 850 Watt, 80+ Bronze Certified, SLI, 135mm Ultra Silent Fan. $154.99
Asus PSU calulator say's I need a minimum of 800Watts. For the upgrades I want to do.

I would choose one of the modulars. A Gold rated one of course is going to be better than a bronze for green reasons. Read the reviews on Newegg.

The built-in fan in the PSU in my sig hardly spins at all and is very quiet. A very nice feature if you're concerned about noise.

Hello M2N32 SLI deluxe owners outhere,

I've joined this forum because I have an urge to purchase an AMD Phenom 955 BE C3 http://www.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif. and because I have some questions.
I'll upgrade my gpu from 8800gts 320Mb to an AMD Radeon 6850. My question is if I can use this CPU+GPU configuration on my M2N32 SLI deluxe using PMT. My OS will be WIN 7 Ultimate x64. I don't care about using PMT like Cool'n'Quiet feature, i'll be using it for "unlocking" the CPU in my Mobo.
Did somebody on this forum managed to use this combination of CPU+GPU (amd and ati) ?

Can I use Nvidia Tools if I own an Ati gpu?

Thanks in advance.

I like my Asus 24" HD moitor. I wish I could have gone bigger but the price was right. I'm pretty sure I paid $165 ish for it at TigerDirect.com.
Thanks for all your help.
