Hi, I'm looking for a decent speed boost but definetly prefer reliablity.
Looking at the following drives. I would really like the ssd but reading reviews I'm not sure if its stable enough. I read on misc reviews that the samsung spinpoint f4 is almost as fast as the wd raptor. Was hoping for confirmation on this, consider price difference + more storage, if the speeds are really similar. The ssd is my max price, if any other hard drives are recommended, cant go over $130 usd, prefer under $100 if possible, but again if the ssd is really more realible then the reviews saying varies things like "not ready for mainstream" etc, I may go with it cause they definetly seem to be the fastest thing out there atm, however I do not wish to have to re image often / backups constantly if I can avoid it. My computer specs if it helps are at the bottom if it helps. Thank you in advance for any advice.
Here is my current setup
Antec 1200 case + 2 extra fans in it.
Coolmaster 650gx powersupply
GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2
ddr2 4 gigs worth.
amd 965 quad with coolmaster hyper plus
sapphire 6970 2gigvram
samsung 1tb f3 spinpoint drive
Windows 7 64bit home edition
If any further info is required let me know.
Edit, I forgot to list why I would need faster read writes it seems =)
I play an mmo that uses the hard drive to load zones, I hear faster read/writes speed reduce load times drastically. Mostly gaming would be my use. Thanks again!
