    Quite an old HDD! The change to an SSD may would be worth if you're an Gamer or use to work with Video editing! Question would be: would your Hardware work with it?!

    And as I wrote in some other post, I wouldn't use an SSD for the time being because of their sensitivity regarding power. In Thailand we didn't have stable power at all and I was getting a few SSD's down already and'll stay therefore with SATA 3 HDD's.!

    Anyway, it up to the user what to use and why!

    For 110 € I get a 2TB SATA 3 HDD in Thailand!! And in case of Warranty Claim, and SATA3 is much more easy (and directly claim/exchange) to claim than an SSD, which would be send for to test first, which means you've to wait 2-6 weeks for the replacement (if you get one!)! I was getting only 1 from 3 damaged SSD's, which therefore turned out to be to expensive overall!!

    SSD drive make all the difference, trust me. I have a SSD drive and it is night and day between SSD and sata drive. Here's an example: to transform a video file to make a dvd with convertxtodvd. Same machine: with a sata drive, between 40 and 50 frames per minute. SSD drive between 500 et 550 frames per minutes :worthy:. To open any application, a blink of the eye and it is open.:eek:
    If you want a real fast computer and spend some money worth it, go for a SSD.

    Alright so here are some recommendations
    i) Use the "High Performance" Power Plan
    ii) Disable Hibernate if Not Used
    iii)Turn Off Unneeded Visual Effects
    You can optimize performance by changing how menus and windows appear. Uncheck the visual effect options that you do not want or need, or select the Adjust for best performance option, to help performance. The most common visual effects to uncheck are:
    · Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing
    · Animations in the taskbar
    · Fade or slide menus into view
    · Fade or slide ToolTips into view
    · Fade out menu items after clicking
    · Show shadows under windows
    · Slide open combo boxes
    v) Enable Write Caching for Storage Devices

    This option is usually the best choice to use for storage devices that must provide the highest possible performance, and that you intend to not remove from the system frequently, such as internal hard disk drives.
    VI) Disable or Delete Unneeded Startup Items
    VII)Disable or Uninstall Internet Explorer Add-ons and Toolbars
    VIII) Disable Help Tips for New Users
    IX) Clean Your Computer
    X) Get a Optimizer e.g Advanced system care
