    well if theirs an available update it probably wouldn't hurt (intel guy =P i haven't played around with amd)
    and are you imaging your original OS or fresh install when you get your ssd?

    Gonna do a fresh install since it is a new motherboard. and drivers may be diffrent my old hard drive will be my storage for important non everyday appiicantions. i was told to flash the bios of the motherboard before doing anything else so it can support my new cpu. so on boot up i am gonna flash it before i install windows.
