My next system when I replace this one will certainly have an SSD as the primary drive as I can't put one on this XP Pro system.

Ahh! saying that, I had problems trying to get an XP install to actually boot after it installed, can you shed light on that?, It was also the day I built it, (4 months ago) but in all honesty, if you want those fast scans and general better performance, get the SSD.

The short answer is that XP doesn't really support SSD drives, they really didn't come out until much later than the OS.

Ah ah ah, No, I got the SSD last thursday, I tried installing XP on my 1TB hdd the day I built it, so I didn't have the SSD at the time.
