Seconded on the SSD. - also make sure it's an internal SSD. I had mine in an external USB enclosure and the bandwidth limitations were causing all sorts of issues. ()Hooked up to USB for convenience, before installing SC, for more storage.)
I've got an Origin 400i as my daily driver, and I enjoy it. Rented the Anvil Carrack today. Holy hell is that a massive one to walk through. Multi-crew is definitely justified. I land ships poorly. And, uh, this one was no exception to that. Fined for not landing the Carrack properly / damaging it (maybe ?), resurrected in medbay after falling from the Corrack into the landing bay and becoming incapacitated due to my own piloting negligence.
