+1 to the Mushkin Chronos. I've been using the 120Gb model for 6 months or more. Win7, BF3 and whatnot for 63GB used space. Enjoy.

Just ordered the same Mushkin SSD myself and I'm in the same boat as Boog. Will be paying close attention to this thread and the sticky also.

I just installed an Intel ssd as well, not sure if I have it optimized correctly yet. Are there some bench marks complete with comparisons one could use to verify that?

Hi guys,

A question of my own. I have a 480GB Crucial M500 SSD on my new build and I want to partition it. The reason is so that I can reformat my build in the future without having to reinstall my games, which I'd like to put on a separate partition on the SSD. How much space should I ideally leave on the main OS parition? Currently with all programs installed I'm sitting at 90GB used. I was thinking leaving 180GB. Thanks!
