My System Specs

Default I am Glad to See The Price Of SSD comeing down.

When I first used them the boot up was great but the price was way to high .I bought two Western Digital SiliconEdge Blue SSC-D0064SC 64gigs and had about 116 gigs and that did'nt take no time to fill up even without putting any games on it,plus I paid nearly $300 for them.Fineally just sold them and waited.I just could'nt past up the deal newegg had on the 256Gig SATA III Crucial M4 for $170 ,I see they have done went up.The boot time is so quick and shutting down or comeing out of sleep mode takes just secounds.The new Antec P 280 caes I bought has two special slots where it fits perfect.Now I just need to buy some large 3 TB drives to hold my games and movies.

Yeah I just saw this too
Hard Choices Update: SSD Price Crash | Rock, Paper, Shotgun
Makes me really think about getting one, but I'm a little daunted by the setup procedure for them on my relatively old system. I've skimmed over a few of the threads here on installing them, there seems to be alot of parameters to set before even starting, it would be strictly for a boot drive with minimal programs. Is it easier than I think?
Can we get a concise step by step guide?

Don't mind me asking, but what were you using to fill them up? On my 60GB SSD I installed a 8 GB game, win 7 ultimate x64 and still had 20GB left.
