SSD NEWS: SSD Migration or Fresh System Installation - An SSD Primer
     Tue, Jun 05 2012 | 9:11A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the first challenges new SSD users face is whether to migrate the system in place or to consider a fresh OS installation where one might `start from scratch`. In many cases, users have several years invested in their system whereas, with others, the security of a fresh installation is a major step towards SSD happiness. The choice of SSD migration may seem the simplest answer but users should be aware that things may not go as planned, thus mandating a fresh install in any case. This article is intended to provide a brief overview of system migration and some of the difficulties that may be encountered, as well as providing an alternative and comparison in completing a fresh OS installation with your new SSD."

     Tue, Jun 05 2012 | 9:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have another PC case from MSI, this one is part of their Interceptor series and its called the Ravager. Yes its a different name for a case but its a unique looking case.
