The phone question SSD.

Is AHCI enabled in the Bios, before you installed the Operating Sytem?

It should be.

The less free space an SSD has, the worse it performs.

Read a few guides on SSDs'.

I was listening to the podcast and heard a shortage of bang for the buck CPUs.

There are still a number of AMD Phenom II 1090T and 1100T at microcenter.

Their prices are usually just as good or better than Newegg or Tigerdirect.

I shop there since its local to me and pricing is good.

Great podcast as always, thanks guys. : ) I wanted to do something fun and answer some of the rhetorical questions you guys ask, maybe some random thoughts too (yeah, I'm bored).
There aren't enough videos of Ryan, just FYI
Should I be excited about the 7000 series(besides the possible water cooling), can you at least tell me that Ryan "Tight Lips" Shrout?
I have a 2 720P displays, haha... that's right, I'm poor. I am totally sold on the 4K screens though, I'm going to start saving now.

Why is the video so small now? I'm not complaining I'll watch anyway, just wondering. I also appreciate the timely release.
Ryan, you look depressed. Do you need a hug?
If I won the Lotto, could i donate? Seriously.

P.S. Did I miss the aquarium PC build?!?!?!?!
