Froggie, can you ask your son what SSD software he's using. I'll have Windows 10 Pro on my new desktop.

Hey vms, I'm sitting here with my son now and, as sometimes happens, I got my wires crossed. it is not hiss ssd stuff he monitors, it is some vitals on his core temps, speeds and something about the monster graphics cards he uses...he says they are not actually necessary but just for his techie fun at watching such stuff. He says you will be really happy with the ssds and there is no special care they need.
Sorry for the cornfusion.

I buy my computers with SSD. They're superfast, and the oldest hasn't broken so far (I think it's 2011). I've asked for 500GB SSD drives.

After the first one I have changed the drives to SSDs every time. I have some older computers with old drives and they drive me nuts. Oh. Last year I replaced an old spinning drive for an SSD in an older computer, and it also works great. The computer improved in performance.
