My computer hasn't been formatted in over 3 years (running Windows 7) and I'd like to try a fresh install. I'm curious how often people wipe their drives though, I know I'm not doing it nearly as frequently these days as I was back in the Windows XP era. I'm worried my sluggish compy might be due to a hardware failure rather than hosed software. Finally, I don't use a SSD currently, would it behove me to buy a small one for faster boot times? --- Get a loada this guy here.
Last time I reinstalled Windows is when I got my SSD which was a year or two ago. Other than major hardware changes I don't format often. --- Corsair 500r ~ P8Z68-V Pro ~ i5 2500k ~ Hyper 212+ ~ Corsair 2x4gb ~ TX750w v2 ~ MSI 780 TF ~ F3 1TB ~ Crucial M4 128GB ~ Xonar DG ~ Tt Meka G1 ~ Asus PA248Q
