So i am about to buy a SSD, but i got a few questions!

1. Do i need to re-download drivers once i have installed my SSD and hooked up my HDD again? Or will they work off the slave drive (my HDD).

2. Is it better to have drivers on the SSD drive? (motherboard, lan, video etc).

3. Can i format my HDD in windows if i decided to?

4. Ive never used a system with two storage drives, when i download stuff off the internet does it give me option to select a hard drive to save it to, or does it just use default settings of the browser etc.


If you got anything else to say that you think would be helpful for a new SSD user it would be most appreciated!

Thx for reply. I got a feeling im gonna want to reformat my HDD once i install my SSD because i am kind of ADD like that, and will want a "fresh" experience, so can i format my HDD once in windows or do i need to do it from a CD?

Ok cool, i actually just looked it up and it seems i just right click the drive and hit format, easy enough!

One more question, i am getting a 60gb SSD for 30 bucks and heard about a program called steam mover, where it can put the game you wanna play onto you ssd and you can swap them out for whichever one you wanna play, is this related to the steam game program?
