Most importantly I havent seen the op mention what he plans on using his pc for.




No, it's my way of deleting my own post.



It's no worst than the year and a half or like 1000 posts (it might be more) at Rage. Do people here still use heatware? It is the universal feedback system on the forums.
I would say I use my pc for just every day stuff, nothing special really. I do burn some movies which is probably the most intensive thing I will do. Don't do any gaming, have never played a game online or on pc before. I guess there is a first for everything though lol!

Thank you sir! I will download this later to play around with it. I am sure numbers off my pc would be pretty ugly lol! I will give it a try though just to see how it works. I am sure it will put your numbers into perspective for me as well lol!

Do you just click to open the program and it opens in web window? Does it just automatically give you the stats?

Well, the rules (Terms of Service) were presented to you when you registered here on OCN. You might remember it because you clicked something that said you have read them and that you agree to obey them.

However, they're also at the bottom of every single page:

Terms of Service / Forum Rules

Plus, there are sometimes specific rules for specific forums, such as the For Sale/Wanted area. Keep your eyes peeled.

Click the "Download" link, and then download the Portable Edition of version 3.10.0 (which is at the top of the page you are given). Or simply click here. It's not necessary to download the installer edition unless you want to be able to open it by opening the Start Menu, typing its name, and then clicking what you get.

So I mean, it's just downloadable software like anything else.

However, I recommend ATTO Disk Benchmark over anything else because only ATTO Disk Benchmark will show you the advertised Read/Write speeds (although, it displays it as Write/Read). Others like CrystalDiskMark will just show you what I think can be called "worst case scenario" results, so your results will look very low even though there's nothing wrong with your drive. Benchmarks other than ATTO Disk Benchmark seem to always confuse people, and I see at least one thread a week here on OCN by someone asking why their results are low.

However, any benchmarks that provides Write speeds needs to perform write-testing in order to provide those results. So, use these tests sparingly.

Hell ya. The biggest/best upgrade possible. You'll notice the speed difference RIGHT AWAY. Get a OCZ Vertex 2 or a Crucial C300. Stay away from the new 25nm, get a old 34nm, if you can still find one.

How do you know which is which if it's not specified on the store's product page?

Here's a great example, and a true story from just minutes before finding the OP:

I just downloaded the popular Blizzard Game Diablo II and the Expansion, Lord of Destruction. I remember the hassle of 4 disks, and was excited to have digital copies instead. Moreover, with the use of programs like MagicISO, I would never again have to lean down to pop disks in and out.

It took me longer to Un-Mount / Mount / Un-Mount the 4 disks than it took to install each disk's data. My SSD was that fast for me!

Just like others have said, Your boot times will send smiles marching across Your face as well. The only things to consider are Cost/GB and User Understanding (Your confidence in understanding the software setup of said drive). For the understanding side of things, there are tons of people here on OCN with practical knowledge, guides, and reviews. As for the Cost/GB, I suggest putting out a small hat. Ou - Or a bowl? "Hold the Bowl higher..."
