SSD drives and Otulook etc
Posted on 2010-01-05
I have been waiting to try SSD but now am jumping in
Have purhcased a Kingston SSDNow 64GB drive for desktop after good reviews i have seen. Have a few questions
1 Does anyone have any opinion on these drives and the differences between this model and Kingston M servies and or the Intel SSDs (think i know the Intels come out better but higher $$$)
2 Is there still an issue with SDDs and Outlook 2007? I think i have seen comments here that Microsoft fixed this??
3 I am trying to decide where to use the drive. I have a current dekstop with Intel Quad processor, 4GB RAM, XP Pro SP3, older 200GB SATA drive, ATI All in Wonder HD Pro tuner/Grap[hices card. I am thinking of first trying the drive in this computer and using the software from Kingston to "copy" over the current C drive ( i have reduced the use of the drive to 40GB so it should work ok)
I also am building a new desktop with Intel i7 chip, Asus P6T Deluxe motherboard, 6 GB DDR3 RAM and will use WIndows 7. I have a WD VelociRpator 300GB drive also. If i use the Kingston SSD drive in this new computer i will make it boot drive and want to have Outlook 2007 on it (hoping issues resolved) and all other data on the VelociRaptor.
My thought is to first try it on the old dekstop with XP Pro ans see how it helps or not. Then use it or buy another for the new dekstop.
Any thoughts and opinions a would be appreciated. I interested in improving boot time and program load time. I am impatient! ALso any ideas on a good video card for the new computer. I don't play any games but do do some photos editing and and will be doing vidoe edting as well.
