I am building a HTPC and just bought a 60gb OCZ agility 2 SSD for Win7 Home Premium 64 and apps and am going to store media on a separate regular drive. I have been doing some googling and it appears there are some things that I need to manually configure in the setup to get optimal performance, especially since writing to SSD is a bottleneck. I am doing a fresh install of Win7 to use WMC, Boxee, Zinc.tv and some form of BD playback as well as some ripping and encoding of HD media.
Any special considerations for the HTPC aspect aside from the standard Win7 tweaks? - I am assuming all temp files should go on my media drive(like a WD Green Drive). Any other tweaks - since this unit will be on 24/7, I want it to sleep when not in use, and boot up very fast when needed.
