    The write speeds are not poor any more. Look at the reviews of any of the Sandforce 1200 controller drives on this site. And in Windows 7, which natively supports TRIM, reduction of drive speed over time is largely a non-issue. Prices, I agree, are still high if you wants lots of storage space. For a 60 or 64GB O/S + apps drive, $150 for latest generation is not so horrible for what you get, in my opinion. Other than a new graphics card that skips generations, I have yet to have a "Wow" experience about computer hardware as profound as when I got a SSD.

    - not for the open browser updates..

    Sorry, I don't follow what you mean here.

    EDIT _ removing & putting in a new drive takes 10 seconds

    True, with AHCI enabled in the BIOS and a fresh O/S install, NCQ capable drives can even be hot-swapped (i.e. while powered on).

    RE: "Windows updates can be downloaded and stored manually"
    - not for the open browser updates..
    Sorry, I don't follow what you mean here.

    To update windows & Office I don't use the Distributable file updates
    I merely do Windows Update & it installs the updates with no file saved anywhere.

    Norton is the same & JASC Photo is also like that.

    Whenever I can get an update file for download I do so, as I have 3 computers to keep current.

    I will check out the SSD's link, but why "throw away" my trays, caddies & 10 HDD's $$$$$

    Given the really slow internet connections available to you, will you please share the advantage of doing it from Windows update rather than downloading the updates manually and keeping them in storage, and/or restoring from an image of the O/S and not worrying about any of that?

    10 drives? Woah. Yeah, I understand what you're saying. No need to throw anything away though. Windows 7 + programs lives just fine in a single 30GB or 60GB drive, and you can keep all the rest of the big programs + data in your RAID array.

    Edit: Just found this interesting discussion comparing latency (7-7-7-20 vs. 9-9-9-24, etc.) vs speed (1275 Mhz vs 1600 Mhz, etc.) in the core i7. I think it will fully answer your questions as to what kind of RAM is best for your system.

    TX buddy

    RE dowloading updates
    -searching manually for all the Win, Office & etc updates is a PITA

    Also my Office 2003 corporate licence has been revoked (I gave up calling to reset it each time)
    so the MS Office manual download files are not available - but via Win Update I can get them via open browser.


    Got Win 7 64 bit Pro & a Kingston 128GB SSD

    Started new thread for issues with Win 7 install
    This SSD install attempt sure screwed up the PC

    Decided on RAM getting Kingston HyperX KHX1600C7D3K3/6GX

    I will 1st proceed with the MB reflash & put in the 6GB HyperX 7-7-7-20 RAM kit
    As I don't see a Hyperx with a lower than 1600 in the 6GB kit per the article Eido referred me to - lower is better for gaming & that is all I use this one drive for
    - the 1600 C7 seems to be a good trade off

    Then I probably will try to go 4GHz from 3.66 on the 920

    TX again for all you replies


    Reason I took this long to repost....
    "6 weeks ago my left hand had an argument with my table saw blade
    - 3" cut to the bone on index finger but the worst was that I broke off the first 2 large knuckles where the fingers meet the hand...
    Know the saying ... if I didn't have bad luck I'd have no luck at all... "
