    Many manufacturers don't always specify the ssd NAND memory type.
    Corsair Force GT models should all use synchronous NAND.
    OCZ Vertex3 and some of their other models use synchronous NAND.
    Most Crucial ssd's use synchronous NAND. Double check by contacting Curcial's tech support.

    Verify at the manufacturer's web site that the ssd you want uses synchronous NAND.
    Some etailer's web sites might not have the correct information.

    After one year of use, my 60GB o/s ssd is about 50% full, but I moved many folders to my HDD's "temp" partition to minimize ssd write/erase cycles.
    A 120GB ssd will probably have better overall performance, and a 240GB ssd should have even better performance.
    My 60GB Agility2 ssd has been fantastic with my older P35 system.
    Don't buy their Agility3 ssd with asynchronous NAND.

    The GTX 570 should have performance similar to my GTX 460 SLI setup, without the added heat that a dual card setup often has.
    Will check out your win7 language question thread now.

    Posted my reply in your thread:
    Question: Can I Install a Win 7 English DVD and use a German product license for from a Win 7 German edition??
    I think that you'll need to contact M/S support to answer this question.
    With my win7 Home Premium setup (and probably all win7 versions), I had up to 30 days that I could run windows without activating it until it would turn into a pumpkin at midnight on the 31st day and self cripple some of the O/S features.

    Well here we are again,. Back to motherboard decision. Spent around 10hrs on the PCI-E 3.0 scenario.
    Here's an interesting link.

    Not that it really satisfies anyones needs it certainly sums up the situation fairly well.

    My thoughts (or rant) on this are if I have compatibilty with a yet to be released PCI-E 3.0 GPU then I can be happy with that. Yes you can argue that this is pointless if you don't end up with the higher bandwidth, but my feelings are it will be a somewhat longer period of time before GPU manufactures take full advantage of the extra bandwidth. Seeing as I'm not overly concerned with Crossfire or SLI (which really will be where the benefits if any will be seen).

    Now ofcoarse this will mean I will not have the bandwidth of the new PCI-E 3.0 but will not lose out when new PCI-e 3.0 GPU's are released in the future. Yes there will be a performance hit, but really I can't see how this will be in anyway significant. If you look at a single PCI-e 2.0 card running at half the bandwidth (ie x8 instead of native x16) the drop in FPS is nominal. This therefore in my opinion means that running a PCI-E 3.0 card in a 2.0 slot@x16 (with updated bios) will run at half bandwidth of PCI-e 3.0. And the real world difference in FPS will not be seriously effected. Taking that into account and with the new 7000 series about to arrive we already see (in reviews) just how signifcant the peformance increase is without even touching a native PCI-3.0 slot.

    Now with that being said,..will the current 2500k and 2600k CPU's be compatible with the yet to be released IVY Bridge Mainboards?
    If So I feel I have established a nice upgrade path in the future. Meaning I can upgrade my mainboard or Cpu indepedently of each other. (Ofcoarse only all benefits will arise once the new Mobo and CPU are married.) But what it does mean is purchasing options suddenly become wide open and getting a great price will be become a likely option. (end rant).

    Though it may seem unwise (I have 14day right of return no questions asked) I have purchased an asus p8p67 deluxe rev 3.0

    Got this for half price!! New with warranty.

    I am aware of the 1 in 3 chance of a bad mobo.

    Next step is 1 of 2 options. Scrap it and return it
    Or buy the rest of my build now.
    I will be making a GPU purchase later today (if the price is right) GTX 570.

    Will now set to work Build specifications and post soon.
