I got my husband an XPS 8700 for his birthday with his money... most housewives do that but he is quite a dunce when it comes to computers . I tried last time to ask him to let me build one but he wouldn't let me . He said I could have burned the house down so it was cheaper to go with Dell, some logic there at work.
Anyway I got them to bump the card to the 660GTX from the 650 they offered .Kinda hard with Italy Dell they are so behind anyway my problem lies with the 32gb ssd cache. Now this thing is hardwired to the SATA its called MSATA and according to the dell forums after I searched high and low trying to turn the damn drive on that the computer uses it to assign that drive to programs you frequently use. Is this gimmick talk or is it true ? I looked in the bios hoping to get access to it myself through the device manager but no dice. So does this SSD cache work like that or is it a convenient lie to make us sods pay more.
Stingy Dell didn't even throw in a mousepad .
BTW the 660GTX runs really cool it was 35 degrees C while my 580GTX is about 47 when not playing a game.
