OK, I'm tired of waiting for things to happen with my current system, particularly with my internet connection manager. And yes, I've pruned all the unnecessary crap from 'Start-up'.
I'm retired, but the fact that I have time on my hands doesn't seem to have alleviated my inherent impatience.
So, to speed thing up I've hit the 'BUY' button for a 128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD.
My intention is to use it to run my OS (Windows 7 64bit), Photoshop and other PP programs, as well as the Bigpong Connection manager. I figure if I do the PP on the SSD and save the finished product to one of my spindle drives it should speed things up. Yes?
My pertinent system info is:
O/S - Windows 7 64bit Pro
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition @3.2GHz, with unlocked multipliers, but capable of a steady 3.7GHZ if needed, with Noctua twin fan cooler.
RAM - 16GB G.Skill DDR3-1600 Ripjaws running at 1333 MHz, can be squeezed to 1600MHz if needed
GPU - Sapphire Radeon HD5670 with 1GB DDR3 RAM
HDD - 1 x WD 1TB (C)
2 x WD 500GB ........ There is a lot of duplication on these drives that I will clean up.
Any hard won tips, and things to avoid, would be much appreciated.
