    Since you are building a gaming rig you might want to read a new article about ssd's and gaming published yesterday by Tom's Hardware:

    Here is a link to the ssd database:

    You can click on the links to technical reviews of the different brands and models.
  2. I have the m4 64g, and am happy with it. 1 thing though, there is a firmware revision for the m4, so check that and update if need be before you install OS
  3. I would also go with the Crucial M4. Definitely check for firmware updates first as well, they seem to still be shipping with 0001 but there is 0002 out that fixes some issues.
