My System Specs

Default Got new SSD, need opinions

Ok so I went and finally got a SSD for myself.

It is the Kingston SSDNow V-Series 128GB (SNV425-S2BD/128GB). I ended up getting it for $272 so it was about the best deal for a half decent SSD at that size.

Now, here is what I want opinions on. Should I just start fresh and install win7 on it and everything else I need or should I just clone my current OS drive to it and go from there. Of course the clone will be much much quicker, but the full redo most likely will yield better over all results.

Your thoughts?

Oh and I don't really want to do the full wipe but will if I have too.

Yea, I'm pretty sure I will go that route. I just really don't feel like redoing it all. I'm going to do that later in the year anyways when I redo a bunch of drives in my server and main machine.

Plus I can always just do it later if I need to.
