Please help 250 it 120 ssd

Based on my build please help me chose between 120gb or 250gb ssd card. I heard that 250gb helps with better loading times, including ingame loading which is good if you play games that have large map and requires loading. Please explain your answer and let me know if the build is good to go. Thanks.

More about 250 120 ssd
  1. Any difference in speed you might see between a 120 and 250 Samsung you're not going to notice in game. I would go with the 250 only because it's bigger and you can put more stuff on it.
  2. Best answer
    Currently the modern 3rd generation SATA 3 6Gb/s 256GB solid state drives are considered to the "sweet spot" and the best value for the money. That is due mainly to this year's price reductions.

    I would recommend the Samsung 840 EVO over the 840. It is a better performer. It is currently available for $9.00 Canadian Dollars more than the 840 you listed. Here is the link to the 840 EVO at your Canadian vendor:
