1) I think the mobo bios is 1a or 1c do i need to upgrade to latest v1g
2) Need to do anything special when loading the OS (Win7x64) for the first time on the SSD
3) Any tweaks or things i need to do once OS is loaded on the SSD
4) Should i only install os + updates on SSD or install the applications as well, whats the best method.
Bios updating goes like this, if ain't broke don't fix it. That being said, I don't think majority of us here are happy if we're not trying to at least break something, so if you want to update, go for it. I'm going too
AS for your SSD questions, before Win install enable AHCI in BIOS. The one major thing to do in the OS is too disable disk defrag and read up on TRIM. When it comes to what you should install on the SSD, I'd say for sure, OS + updates and your core programs that you use the most. For me that would be Steam, Team Speak, etc... you get the pic, but it's up to you. Unfortunately 120GB isn't a whole lot of space anymore. I will wait 1 more year to go SSD so I can get at least a 250GB SSD for less than $250
