So my PC is getting on in years now and every time it boots or i sit down to do something i think "this bitch is sloooow, i Need a new one"
and then my next thought is "nah, so much Money just for a bit of typing, playing my music and playing games, i spend way too much time on it as it is, i need to spend some time with the family, go for a walk, get out and see shit".

And that is the way it goes every time, good angel on one shoulder, bad angel on the other, should i ? shouldn't i ? i know i want to but then i would have a guilty conscience.

and then because my ram had too many bad blocks to make a ram disk for the big windows june update i went online to get me some new DDR3 (old as the hills now but no cheaper!)
by Alternate and then, because my plan for my new PC (dreaming is free) is to get a bitchin SSD for windows but still can't chose between mSATA, U2, M2 or pci express (does the increase in speed justify the price ?) i saw the comparatively low prices of the SATA SSD.

And got me one.

I had a software on my pc to clone the C drive and downloaded a freeware for the same purpose just to try it out but ended up doing a clean install because i didn't want to clone all the shit i had installed since last time.
and am very pleased with it, boot time has more than halved, opening an app (well that's what win10 calls them now) takes just a few seconds, and with my 4 new ram chips i am ready for the next 10 years.

the reading time is faster because the Information is shared between 2 drives, it works with normal drives, when i built this PC i started with 2 drives in raid 0


one drive does not operate faster but two drives giving the same information (or the other half) are faster than one, although "double the speed" was maybe an exaggeration on my part ;-)

But when you get rid of one bottleneck you just move on to the next one.
