I bought a copy of Win7 Pro 64 with a 120g OCZ Agility. I assume I will have to flash the firmware to enable trim? Any other pointers that I need to know?

Yeah will probably need to be flashed for trim, and google "SSD tweaks" or the like and you'll find some great little settings that help keep your drive speedy and less likely to degrade over time.
You shoulda got in on that deal I posted a few days ago!!!
Straight from the horse's mouth: Support and Q&A for Solid-State Drives. It is worth a read or three. Windows 7 is even more tricky than you in the superfetch case. It will selectively disable Superfetch on SSDs with high random read performance while leaving it on on crappy SSDs (like the JMicron ones) and hard drives. So in a system with SSDs and hard drives Superfetch will be disabled for the SSD but enabled for the hard drive. As a general rule disabling Superfetch will only slow you down.It is? Get out? Links please to show this does it automatically....
AFAIK it will automatically disable the defrag, but superfetch was still enabled and I had to disable it, so was indexing.....until I vlite'd the install and took that crap out for this particular image...
To each his own I guess, but do know that unused RAM is wasted RAM. It is not something I would go around recommending people do.Im a self noted moron when it comes to Superfetch. I prefer to see all my RAM available even though I know darn well it 'technically' is. So SF is disabled across the board.
Just because Superfetch is enabled doesn't mean it is, um, superfetching from the SSD. My point is that Windows 7's way of managing Superfetch is a lot more granular that on/off.I kno when I first dumped W7 on this SSD indexing and Superfetch were enabled. This is the sammy controller and is not the slow arse jmicron one.
Ok this is enough of a tangent on my specific stuff. Sorry (again!) krag!
