ok the time has come for me to finally get a SSD for my current build but i have a few little annoying issues that i wanna clear up first of all.
1. Im almost set on getting a Force GT 120gb from scan as its the best offer that ive seen which is fine and upon reading a few reviews seems to be one of the best on the market for the budget that i have which is about £100, im currently using a MSI P67-GD65 Mobo on a Core I7 2600k, my question is this: Upon installing the ssd into the case, for the duration of the fresh install onto the new SSD, should i disconnect the old HDD from the PC cause ive hear from some SSD videos that rather than storing the boot info on the SSD it would install the boot info on the HDD instead and then once the install is finished simply reconnect the old HDD to the sata cable? what is the correct procedure for installing stuff.
2. Once i have installed windows on the new SSD, my current 750gb HDD is about half full, how do i access the installed stuff on the other HDD for example, Games, MS Office, Steam stuff like that, also if i want to say install WoW, Diablo3 and Win 7 onto the new SSD drive, would i install them as usual then simply reboot the system and use the old HDD as the primary boot to uninstall them from the old HDD for which im gonna use as storage
3. I think i know the response to this question but i wanna make sure, do i use the SATA3 connectors that are set to the P67 Chipset and not the ones that are controlled by the Marvell Chipset as i heard something about marvells not supporting TRIM, also how is trim set up on a SSD, is it automatic or is it when i set the drive to ACHI instead of IDE its enabled then
Any input into these minor questions would be fantastic and greatly thanked
