    MBR or GPT

    Continuing on the SSD theme, should the drive be MBR or GPT?

    Depends on your computer. If you have a UEFI mobo and Windows 8 or higher, then it's GPT. Otherwise stick to MBR.
    GPT provides support for really big drives that MBR doesn't and it is the default disk type for a W8 and above install, but Windows doesn't actually care what type you use and you can still boot a UEFI machine from MBR.

    cheers, Paul
