I am not sure what you are asking. A ssd drive has a data and pw connector; just like any other hard drive.

Exactly that, is it the same as plugging in a normal hard drive. It's just that I read on some forum page about different voltages and things which I didn't quite get because the connections look the same. Thats all

Thanks

I uses the same pw connector as any other sata type drive. Are you installing win7 on this drive?

ahci is the generally accepted mode for the sata controller when using a ssd type drive.

Just some advise;
SSDs do not need to be defraged so disable defrag for your ssd [win7 should do this during setup]
Turn OFF search and indexing

Do not run multiple benchmarks on the drive. Too much use and it will throttle itself down. Other than that, just do the install like any other install.

FWIW ssd drives are very reliable. I have had 2 ocz vertex2 drives in raid0 for quite a while now; no problems at all. Boots win7 in about 12 seconds.
