I am finally sinking the cash into my first SSD. This one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227688
seems to be within my budget and many people have seemed to like OCZ products so this is the one i have been considering.
I do not plan on installing my OS on this drive though, i only intend on using it for games performance and faster load times on applications i use most frequently (photoshop, Crysis 2, SC2, etc.) Basically my questions revolve around what i need to do to set this up. On a mechanical hard drive, it's pretty much just plug and play anymore if there is no raid setup or anything to do, but with SSD's i've heard that you need to enable trim support and set up the drive in the bios. But if i'm not using this as an OS drive, can i just install it and go or are there more steps to complete? Does trim only work if this drive is the OS drive?
Any help, guides, or suggestions to installing an SSD NOT for the OS but just for gaming would be great.
