A dollar per Gig is a sick deal if you are looking for a SSD. They are a great investment!

This thing normally sells for $160-200.

I posted the deal the moment I saw it, I knew they wouldn't last long. Did you get one in time?

Nah no big deal, there will be another sale. SSD is a luxury not a necessity so I'll wait for the right deal.

Aside from boot-up, what differences are you noticing?

Faster load times in games.

For some (like Vanguard) it's damn near mandatory.

Also if you have a Z68 board, you can take advantage of the smart cache technology which is pretty damn awesome.

That's assuming you have an SSD that has enough space for games. How much space does Windows 7 take up?

Interesting. Amazon has that same SSD in stock for $150ish. Not too bad. I may pick one up and try it.

I run 2 Corsair Force Series 120GB SSD's in raid-0 with Win 7-64 and it is rock solid. Been running this set-up for about a year now and had absolutely no issues with it at all.

Very fast load times and and zero noise (Raptor-rattle anyone?). Added bonus is no heat. I will never go back to spinning disks again after my experience with raid-0 SSD.
