Pull your act together folks, I'm not entirely sure how this thread devolved from a user asking about SSD pricing to a debate about imaging backups.
If it continues to devolve, the thread will be closed.
Yes I'm sure. My last few builds have been with SSDs and I did not need to change anything to make them work. SSDs are not new. Motherboard and BIOS makers are not new to SSDs. And the SSD makers have not been sitting still all these years either. And neither have OS makers.
If you buy a new motherboard and a new SSD, and a modern OS, all you have to do is connect the cables, power up and install your OS.
