Default Not too sure, SSD on nFORCE 650i chipset?

Hi all,

My buddy owns a DELL XPS 630i...sad I know. The thing is that his motherboard is a weird/hacked by DELL nFORCE 650i-based jobbie. He wants to jump on the SSD bandwagon.
I recommended him to get win7 64 (TRIM support/DX11 and all that jazz). But I hear about potential issues with nFORCE chipsets and TRIM?

Would it be better for him to replace that mobo? There is SO many DELL XPS630i owners that "Frankenstein'ed" their 630i...because these computers are crippled/full of issues (no doubt, it's D(h)ell).

You know there is issues with the gear when there is sites like this :

The 630i Resource Collective: What's New?

Anyway, does somebody has experience with nforce SATA controllers and TRIM in Win7?
