So I am in the process of up grading my seven year old computer. It's been a dependable computer for the better part of 5 years. Left on 24/7. 365
days of the year.
I finally got around to replacing my obsolete video card. The ATI Radeon 3870. A few weeks ago I picked up a nice Asus 780 Ti cheap off of Ebay that
I have been playing with. Crysis and Blender/Blenchmark so far.
My system is an Asus Maximus II formula. P45 chipset with a Q9550 @ 3.5 overclock
So my next issue is Crystal Mark disk Info is telling me my velociraptors in Raid 0 are bad.
Why wouldn't they be right ?
Over 52,000 hours on them or 2,184 days power on hours.
Not a single Raid failure in all that time.
Go Western Digital!
Some Samsung Evo's SSD's
Can't say I haven't gotten my moneys worth.
I know PCI express 3.0 is backwards compatible with 2.0. Haven't ran into any issues with the video card.
I know SATA III is backwards compatible with SATA II so that isn't a problem.
I know I won't get the Sata III rated speeds on my system.
I am expecting to get at least the theoretical speed on a single drive in Raid 0. Close to at least 500 mb. Getting 250 Read/Write on a 128k
From my understanding Windows 7 takes care of trim support so that is my question really.
There won't be any issues with the SSD's right ?
Am I like the only one that is still using obsolete hardware?
