Best SSD for my use?


I've just started looking for an SSD to replace my Raptor HDD. I am a gamer, and will use this SSD for W7, a couple of games (approximately 35gb worth) and some lightweight programs.

* What size, in gb, SSD should I get?
* Are SSDs connected in the same way as a normal HDD?
* How do I know if a particular SSD is slow, average or fast? Compared to other SSDs, of course.

I order from this site: click. Any recommendations? To sort by price, press "Pris". I can pay up to approximately 2000,- ($370).

    I would go with at least a 120GB SSD. Their initial setup is like a standard hard drive. You just want to ensure you enable AHCI for your SATA controller before installing. If your board is a SATA II board, I would go with the Intel 320. If your board has SATA III support, I would go with the Crucial C400.
  2. I have a ASUS M4A78T-E, which seems to only support SATA II. What's the difference between SATA II and eSATA?
  3. eSATA is an external SATA connector for portable devices or hot swap devices.

    With your motherboard, I would go with the Intel 320 for your upgrade :)
  4. All right, thanks!
