At the minute I have a asus v pro mobo. 1TB standard HD. i5 3570k cpu. all in a HAF full size case. I have other idems, but nothing that should cause any problems with a SSD. I will get the Vapor x 7970 gpu this weekend also.
oh I have a psu 750W gold
Its down....$139.99 for the ssd. I think I did alright :-) Can some one give me links to newegg on what I need and what is a good sata cable and 2.5 to 3.5 drive adapter.
Comes with the cable
It comes with the bracket.
** Installation Kit also includes 3.5" bracket with screws, SATA data and power cables, mounting spacer, and SATA to USB adapter cable
You should get all the retail stuff in the box. I would wait to purchase anything else until you get the item.
Before doing a fresh install with the SSD, make sure that the firmware is up to date. Also, make sure that the drive is setup to run as AHCI (done in bios). Other than that, plug it in to the sata 3 port and enjoy!
