Re: A 'hidden cost' of being a pro

I investigated SSDs very carfully and was told their value was in having the OS on them. Since the computer came ready to run that would have meant replacing the C drive and reinstalling windows and any/all drivers. At least this computer came with a windows CD (my last 5 have not had ANY cd of any kind included).
Second, I've spent countless hours over the past 2 years moving/deleting data as my main work drive was all too often at it's capacity. So moving from a 750 to a 1Tb (or larger perhaps...) was going to have to happen.
Internal drives are always faster than external - eSata may be an exception but then it's only 'as fast'. This box/mobo can hold 4 data drives in addition to the C drive and DVD, most in SATA 3 and 2 configs.
I have an external box that I use for backup, usb connection. It supposedly is capable of eSATA but my attempts to connect it as such have not been successful.
