    Hey everyone, I just recently bought a new motherboard/cpu/ram/psu for my computer. I also bought a 64gb kingston SSD. I plan on installing Win 7 64-bit ultimate on this SSD, is there anything I should know before doing this? I'm going to be running all my programs off a 500gb WD cavier black, also are there any programs that won't or can't install onto the 500gb WD drive? thanks guys

    There are several things you will have to do. One of the most important will be to move the Page File to a secondary hard drive, preferably making a separate partition at the beginning of the drive.

    There are several tweak programs you can download for free also.

    Here's a handy little application that will help you out.

    Here's a good article from Tom's Hardware: Windows 7 and Optimization for Solid State Drives

    These should help you with your install. :cool:
