Default Re: upgrading to a solid state drive

I've got an OCZ Vertex 30g and with a bare-bones install I also have two games installed. Still have a little room... But the SSD is one of the best upgrades you can do! UNGODLY FAST!!! The only thing that's slow on my big-rig now is the Net.. 0_o Doooooo Eeeetttt!!!

PII 940 @ 3.8g | Gigabyte DS4H | OCZ Reaper 1066 | HD 4870 1G | Ultra X3 1000w | Antec 900 | 1/2" CPU/GPU LIQUID LOOP | OCZ SSD | Swiftech + XSPC

<---- If You enjoyed my ramblings, or if I've helped you, Check me... :D

That was a bit... extreme?

I had a Vertex 30GB. I often found it too small, with all the programs I use. But I now have a Vertex 60GB, and am using bout half the drive.

After using this for about a week now, I realize how small 60GB is now days. Having a larger Black HDD is a must, unless you don't have many games/programs you use. Next time I'm asked about an SSD for gaming, I'm recommending at least an 80 if not 120.
