Just like any other HDD, for fastest operation make sure it is set in ACHI mode in BIOS.

You should still apply any FIRMWARE updates to your SSD.

FYI, I installed Windows 7 to a 60GB SSD on a system with 8GB of RAM and the installation size was about 35GB. Some 60GB SSD's have as little as 51.3GB of usable space.

I ran out of space with the 60GB drive after six months due to installing programs, Microsoft Updates and System Restore points.

My advice for Windows 7/Vista is a 120GB SSD, and install games to a separate hard drive (all my Steam games are on a 2TB WD Green drive and Windows is on an SSD).
