My System Specs

Default

Windows 7 should know that you have a SSD and not defrag it already, but it's good to check first thing when you are in the install. Both times I've installed Windows 7 it already knew not to touch my Intel 160GB. The only BIOS setting to worry about is running your SATA controllers as AHCI instead of IDE. Make sure you understand the differences between the two before you switch it, and know that swapping between the two is not advisable if you already have Windows installed (best to reformat). Ignore any and all SSD tweak suggestions on forums that you come across.. they are unnecessary and could potentially be detrimental at this point. The only one I personally suggest is the Firefox SSD tweaks that change Firefox so that it doesn't temporarily cache streaming media on your hard drive, but instead does it all entirely through RAM.
