OCZ Launches Mainstream Agility Series SSDs
 
The new Agility series SSDs are based on the Barefoot NAND flash controller.High-performance SSD manufacturer OCZ recently launched its new Agility line of SSDs aimed at the low-cost, mainstream market. Based on the Barefoot NAND flash controller from Indilinx, the Agility series SSDs come at great pricing without compromising too much on performance.
 
OCZ is currently the undisputed leader in the SSD market with its Apex, Vertex, and Summit series SSDs. Each of these brands has been generating strong sales on the back of its superb performance and pricing. While the Apex series SSDs feature a JMicron controller, the Vertex series SSDs are based on the Barefoot NAND flash controller and the Summit series ones carry the high-end Samsung S3C29RBB01 controllers.
 
With the introduction of the Agility line, OCZ has extended its lead with what is another potential winner. The devices combine the highly successful Barefoot controller from Indilinx with cheaper, lower performance NAND flash to create SSDs that have maximum read and write speeds of 230MB/s and 135MB/s respectively.
 
Sustained write speeds however, are much lower at just 80MB/s, though this should not be a shortcoming considering the SSDs are aimed at the mainstream market. Available in 120GB and 60GB versions, all SSDs in the series also come with 64MB DRAM cache. While pricing has not been confirmed, the Agility series is likely to be among OCZ’s cheapest offerings considering its positioning.

Hey man sorry I went offline last night was testing some shizzle. Will be on tonight and explain the Joomla to you. You will have to purchase a host which normally start relatively low anyway. I'm sure you can afford £20 a year lol. Don't like using free services and finding one with Joomla is going to be difficult.

I just PM'ed you the same, but for the benefit of others here's my reply:

You need to install Joomla on to a server, you can't run it from your desktop (without some 3rd party apps), and you can't install it on your desktop either. You need to have a hosting package which has at least one SQL database available, and PHP4 or 5 as part of the package. Most decent hosting packages bundle some software installers with the packages, such as Fantastico Deluxe, which allows you to easily install apps from the web based domain control panel. You need to find a decent host with the above mentioned features before you go any further.

EDIT: That host you linked to has everything you would need, and is quite cheap too. Never used them before so I couldn't comment on how good they are. Sometimes you can get dodgy hosts, I had one who went belly up, and my site was in limbo for a while. It cost me a fortune in lost work too. As I said though, I have no clue how good these chaps are but they seem cosher and offer everything you would need.
