we will need a little more information than that.

what CPU?
how much Ram?
make/model/size of the SSD?

is it plugged into a SATA 2 or 3 slot? Either should feel pretty snappy, but SSD on SATA1 could feel a might bit sluggish.

Are you running in IDE, RAID, or AHCI? AHCI is what you want for max performance. RAID can work well too if you are on a newer Intel motherboard that allows TRIM commands to pass though.

Also, what is the brand and model of your motherboard?
