Oh my ... Just as I expected the PSU is too weak for the combo of CPU and GFX card. The GTX 480 alone draws 42 Ampere under full load and the old PSU could only supply 36 Ampere. At least nothing bad ... can be solved by judicious application of money.

I'm thinking about a small drive, just 60GB or so (since the larger ones are still far too expensive for my taste) plus a normal 1000GB SATA-600 HDD for the other programs.

Is anyone deeper into that one? What do you think?

Thanks Madfish, I think I understand the bigger OS picture now and it's involvement in the game loading/running.

I am still going to get that 64Gb SSD, well you just have to jump in somewhere with the new stuff don't you

I'm going to load Win7 on it and transfer my Flight HDD to the new rig and see how it runs. After a while I'll move IL-2 and/or FSX to the SSD and see if there's any difference.

btw that report I posted a link for said:
Gamers want the game to load instantly and play at maximum possible frames per second (FPS) with all features turned on. Using that as our measurement objective we found:
• 4.4% improvement in average game loading time was obtained.
• 6.4% improvement in frames per second was measured.
• 33.5% improvement on one test and 58.3% on another was realized in system benchmarks.
Using a solid state drive will give the gamer the extra edge he or she is seeking.

The games that were used in the testing were:
• Call fo Duty 4
• Crysis
• FarCry 2
• Left4DEad
• Stalker Clear Sky

I'm not saying they're right, and it's not a great improvement, but I'll find out.

Be interesting to see what csThor makes of it too.

Speaking of whom - thanks for the thread csThor, it gave me a lot of useful info
