I'm making the move to a SSD for my main C drive, and I need to get a new monitor. I have some questions about both.
As for the SSD, I already have it. It's mounted in my case and ready to go, but I'm not sure what I need to do before installing windows on it. Do I need to unhook my HDD that's currently running windows? I've heard that the install can get screwed up if I still have a drive assigned as "C" when I attempt to install the OS on another drive. Any truth to this? Also, I have another HDD that has Linux installed on it (as well as my boot menu). Do I have to remove that one too, since it has my boot menu on it? And, If so, can I hook them back up after windows is installed on my SSD so I can used them for storage, or will I have to format them first? Is there a simple BIOS setting I can take advantage of instead messing around with all this?
As for the monitor situation, I recently got an LED Acer from Amazon. The deal was great, so I jumped on it. But I should have paid more attention to the minority of negative reviews because the quality was horrible. I couldn't get a good view, no matter the angle. Dark colors were washed out. It was just an all around terrible monitor. Adjusting the brightness, contrast, etc., did nothing to really change it. I wasn't sure if mine was defective, or if that model just blows. So I sent it back today, and I'm hoping you guys can give me some recommendations. I've never had an LED monitor before, but I have an LED TV and it looks fantastic. I'm looking for something in the 21"-24" size range.
Thanks, dudes! I really appreciate it!
