My System Specs

Default SSD for Older Model Mobo???

Been out of tweaking and playing for a while. Just too busy to even be on the board much but I could sure use the help of the community on this question. I'm trying to determine if I can put the SSD listed below into the current build shown in my signature.

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I checked by BIOS and it does have an option to enable "Sata AHCI" mode and I want to do a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on the SSD (I'm hoping that I can call MS and tell them that my laptop is dying and that I want to transfer my OEM copy to my desktop). Am I good to go or do I need to upgrade my whole system to use this SSD?

I know that I'm in the wrong thread with this but I'm also looking to stick the following GPU into the case to replace my rather dated 8800.

EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Any info would be greatly appreciated as I don't really want to pop for an SSD if it won't work in my current system. Thanks everyone.

The world is your oyster. Shuck away my friend, shuck away!
