Default Intel 730 Series SSD 480GB - TourneDisque

Hi R1 Community,

I was able to get two(2) Intel 730 Series 480GB SATA 6Gb/s Solid-State Drive during a Newegg shell shocker deal 2014. I used the PayPal I've earned from Rewards1.com to purchase these without hesitation.

Yes, I would say I took the time to instal a fresh copy of windows 7 on the SSD but honestly the process was so fast I can't even remember it. The Solid-State Drive actually seem to make accessing my old hard drives faster?



Thanks Rewards1!~
HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Lawlz, if you want one I wouldn't know because I got the dragon from a used store. But maybe try the worldmarket.com

WOW!! that's amazing, congrats on your prize!

SSD will make any computer run/boot faster, specially when you have them running in RAID 0.

Honestly this SSD is already OP and would Raid 0 make a difference or worth the effort? I am not even sure if I am processing enough data for this to even be beneficial in the long run. Seem like Raid 0 is just a mirror of a drive and you lose that extra drive space. let me know if i am wrong?

Well I know it will speed your system even more. Here is a video where Linus explains the benefits and the way to set it up. Here: Raid 0 video
