Samsung 840 SSD 250 GB

Hi,
I was planning to get an SSD as part of a new rig. I have decided to purchase the Samsung 840, 250 GB HD. When searching newegg, I found 2 models of the same.

SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147189

SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250KW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147186

Is there any significant difference between the 2 models?

P.S. I will be using the PC mostly for gaming, and also to run MATLAB Simulation.
Any other alternatives in the same price range are also appreciated. Please keep it under $190.
I plan to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on it, and a few applications.

    The more expensive version is a package which includes some accessories like a 3.5" mounting bracket, sata cable and a laptop conversion kit.

    Since I will be using it in a desktop, can I get the cheaper one? I haven't decided on a case yet, but I will mostly pick a case with 2.5" HDD bay.
  3. The cheaper one is better, if you need a 3.5" to 2.5" bracket you can get them off newegg for $5ish. And you will be happy with the Samsung.
  4. KW vs BW in product name. K probably means Kit. Yes I'm right!

    Nm... Save yourself a headache and buy the KW. Save yourself some bucks and buy the BW.
  5. Thank you everyone, for the quick replies.
