(Another new firmware
has been released recently too)
Would also go for a regular sata ssd to cut out boot up issues.
Thanks, is it true then, that TRIM works fine on AMD now?

I go with door number two. Put it in a regular SATA drive slot, make it your primary boot and put your BIOS in IDE mode so your TRIM will work fine.
It was definitely not built by an idiot
That was me! hehe.
I think I will do that, go with the Vertex 2 Ext 120Gb and with extra cash buy a pair of F3's 1TB for storage.
Is it true then that TRIM works on AMD now?
But I heard, it is no AHCI mode, and not on IDE mode? I am a bit confused...
If I end up buying the Vertex 2 Ext 120Gb, should I set it on BIOS as IDE, or as AHCI?
And do I need to do anything else on BIOS? or after clean W7 install, do I need to flash the SSD at all? Or just install w7 and play?
Thanks everyone for all suggestions, I really appreciate it!

Supports TRIM on the Crosshair IV Formula, is big enough for my needs, and gets around 230MB/s read speed in HD Tune, roughly comparable to my two Samsung F3's in RAID0
That's great!!! Thanks for the information!
How do I make TRIM to work on my SSD?
Also is it true its better to only use up to 100Gb out of 120Gb? Or is it ok if I make it full? (I will be using it for W7 Home Premium all updated, with firefox, skype, team speak, WoW, and MAYBe black ops + bad company 2. So might take up a bit more than 100Gb, not sure.
