    I had an intel 520 240gb ssd but PCS Informed me that stock is running low. I have 4 questions

    1. Will I notice much of A Difference between 520 series and the 330 series? (other than the size)

    2. Realistically how soon can the new ati 7950m,s be ready to purchase? Is it worth canceling my order or putting it on hold for a swap (675m - 7950m) bug increase in fps for games?

    3. Similar to above is there any indication of a ready to buy date for the ivy bridge chips?

    4. The reason I ask all this is the cut off off date before I go away looms closer. I don't want to kick myself for not waiting that extra week. Is it possible to reserve parts?

    Thank you all for your help

    *question 2 shouldn't say bug increase. It should say "much increase in frames per second" damn auto spelling! Hehe
