alot of people have better benchmark scores using ahci mode vs. ide mode. i didn't look into this when i built my pc and now i have to format, since it's a real pain trying to switch to ahci after windows is installed (and to format i need to do a "sanitary erase" on my ssd to completely clean it up and restore performance).
i also recommend an ssd with a sandforce controller, i bought indilinx for more money and they seem to be going the way of the dodo.
and as you probably already know, as soon as you install windows, disable defrag. ssd's don't like it. but like i said, research the manufacturers forum and you
find alot of info on how to set it up, how to get best performance, and how to keep it running for a long time.
Thanks for the info ... great 1st post!
