brings new life to an old PC

i've got an ageing budget gaming PC, still running DDR2 and SATA 2. I was looking to upgrade my motherboard, CPU and RAM to get up to a more modern spec, but i decided to try an SSD instead, what with the hard drive being the largest bottleneck in any computer.

holy beep this baby made a difference! benchmarking showed a 5 times increase in large file reading, and well over 100 times increase in tiny file reading from my old hard drives! i dont get time to switch to my browser for a bit of surfing while waiting for games to load up or change levels any more.

i didnt bother to do a fresh install of win7, just cloned my old drive to the new SSD then swapped the boot order about. i also enabled AHCI mode after applying this MS tweak to prevent the BSOD if you install windows without AHCI http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976#method1

without AHCI mode advanced features like command queuing can't function, which benchmarked in at 6 times faster with it active for queued files.

Raptor to SSD :)

I've had this SSD running for 7 days so far with Windows 8 Pro 64bit installed. Around 12 apps installed up to now and it boots from a cold start to the login screen in approximately 4-5 seconds and takes 2 seconds to shut down. Not tried this drive with
Windows 7 installed so I am unable to make a direct comparison. My Windows 7 drive was a Raptor 128GB and with the same apps installed and it was no where near as responsive. Drive is connected to an Asus P5Q M/B on SATA 3.0Gb/s only due to its age. *Using AHCI not EIDE*

The only downside was the lack of 2.5" adapter plate, however the FREE
Haribo's made up for that... Cheers Overclockers.
I originally had a the OCZ Vertex 4 256GB due to its popularity and great warranty from another online retailer but this failed within 4 hours of use and has since been refunded.

Overclockers delivery time for this SSD was spot on and so far the drive has worked perfectly. Hope this is of some help those who are still deciding whether to buy.
