It depends somewhat on what OS and what brand of SSD.
XP needs a lot more "hand holding" to keep it running smoothly, Win 7 not so much, again depending on brand.
Check out OCZ's forum, it has a lot of good info about SSD's, which can help out.
I have the Agility 120G on Win 7, actually using it right now, and it is nice, but when you read about all the pre setup, and things to do to keep them "optimal" it's a bit of a pain.
Superfetch you can disable , prefetch, not necessarily. (Win 7)
Cracks me up when i see some guys talk about disabling a bunch of things for fear the drive will die quicker, especially in Win 7, like Aero for instance, kinda defeats one reason going to 7.
This should get you started, but again, drive manufacturer makes a difference, mainly due to firmwares, and how they handle deleted files, etc... and OS makes a difference as well, XP and 7 do require some different steps for a good install and continued smooth operation, to avoid the major slow down that some people get after using them for a while.
