Why do you bring the nvidia cards even up? Using CUDA to encode?
That quality sucks so badly.

Replacing the hdd on my laptop does void the warranty though, I checked it

I bought my SSD before any of the SB parts. I was on a C2Q at the time. It was a great upgrade, and I got it on sale + FS and no tax, so no regrets at all! Hoping to get a Vertex 3 120GB soon. My current SSD will be going into my notebook.

No one's assuming that's the universal mode of use. It's simply a completely plausible and valid answer to the original question posted - one that the OP has chosen to completely ignore.

My SSD was fine with my old system (see other rigs), booted in 20 seconds, this is almost 5 minutes. It's ridiculous, it hangs on the Windows Loading screen, it has a loop of about 3 restarts before it'll even start up. I have no idea what is wrong!

Anyone have any ideas? I got my SSD knowing I was getting a Sandy Bridge setup, so I wanted to make use of it.
You have an ASUS board. Disable Express Gate in the BIOS.

Most people are more worried about the bottleneck between their cpu and gpu. A solid state is not necessary at all. Yes windows boots quick and is very responsive and load times are great on apps but for benchmarkers, it's not nearly as important.

Well $88 new here who on gods name would pay $149 for a 30GB last-gen SSD. Just crazy.

I sold one of mine for just $40 dollars.... I have a long sectional couch, and invite strangers with change in their pockets to try it out. All part of my obnoxiously bizarre plan of buying a SSD with couch change.

PS I never use anything else than xvid/x264, resulting in an fps of 30 at max. So no, ssd's dont help transcoding at all
I do an awful lot of x264 encoding, and I do store the video on my SSD (only while I am working on it however). I rip via AnyDvD to the SSD then transcode to the SSD and then I move it to my Raid array on my file server.

If your getting 30fps then its not very high quality video, so I wouldn't expect an SSD to make a difference. transcode a raw m2ts and see how many FPS you get then.

If you do do a lot of encoding as I do then chances are those big TB drives are not going to be in your main pc; but networked in a seperate pc. In addition you will probably be using Raid 5 or 6 neither of which have particually impressive writes.

SSD in Raid 0...seriously...Trim?

I'm fast enough with my raptors.

Yeah, SSDs are faster, but are you buying my upgrades?
