Ya even my classified mobo is a bottleneck to my GPU's and if I get more SSD's then the mobo will also be a bottleneck to the SSD's. But I am not complaining.

Here's a vid clip I did in FRAPS. Video starts the instant I click the desktop icon, ends back at the desktop.

Gaming with SSD's:

That is impressive. How long did it take to load before SSD?

Duuno, I installed the game on the SSD. I'm assuming the typical wait times as most games.

14 seconds to boot Win 7 x64.

Photoshop CS4 pops open, less than a second.

I didn't say that they were slow by any means that's fast just the 4k i thought would be faster in atto maybe it's just atto
Here look at my a-data's yours are way faster but your 4k is slower or i am just reading it wrong A-Data s592 raid performance

i have installed wolf 2 on my ssd and wow same with ghostbusters it runs much smoother

Just picked up the 120GB Vertex. Going to run Windows 7 (RTM) on that baby once I get through the maze of FAQs and such. I'll keep the Raptor array as secondary storage.
