I just bought a 60GB vertex 2. Perhaps a bit prematurely, but I found one for 139.99 so I couldn't pass up the deal. Either way is it completely necessary to install the OS on this drive? I feel like it would be more beneficial to use the space for important programs and games. Will I see an increase in anything besides OS boot and shutdown times? Also, will W.I.E. recognize the SSD?
Well, I'm pretty sure it will be at least of some help to me as I mostly play RPG's and massive world map games like Fallout 3 and Oblivion (similar to WoW). But I suppose I can spare the extra space and fit both on the drive. Just have to make sure I only put the important stuff on it. Thanks for the tip tho!
