If u can afford an SSD then y not, u can use it as ur windows drive and install all ur apps on it, ur windows experience will be lot quicker with it but would need at least 60Gb model. see if u can squeeze it in, if not then no biggie, u can get it later on.
About the CPU cooler, if u r gona do some overclocking then get it or even a better model but if no overclocking then stock one is sufficient.
Adding a corsair 60gb ssd more expensive then some but felt better about it than the ones that were on sale this week. Does that sound good to put the Win 7 on and put everything else on the Spinpoint?
some people say the small SSD are okay, some people say don't bother if its not at least 120GB.. I've never had one so idk..
but thats a fine SSD.
Corsair Force, OCZ Agility 2, OCZ vertex 2, that G.skill one's name I don't remember are all good.
Well from my previous reads about SSD's there is no need of leaving any free space intentionally, there was some topic about old SSD models which had some sort of issue but newer models are all intelligent (i guess dats the correct word for it).
I had my 60GB SSD 95% full some of the time cause i download high def video directly into it and i have never felt any difference in performance so dat at least proves u dont need 20% free space.
So yeah a 60Gb is more then enough for ur boot drive, i just hope their prices have a big downfall so we can enjoy some gud speed, fed up with this mechanical hdd crap.
haha, I haven't experienced SSD's yet, I just bought a seagate barracuda 7200.12 1tb, now I'm waiting to see on Cyber Monday if I can pick up a 120GB SSD, right now that g.skill one is under $200 so thats a good deal.
