So I going to get a SSD and am not sure which one to get. I have these two options.

Option 1: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/memory-storage/MZ-7P...

Option 2: http://www.corsair.com/force-series-3-120gb-sata-3-6gbp...

As you can see it doesn't look like a lot of storage, but I don't need heaps of storage.

I will be using these drives for all my game and have thought about only a few pros against each drive (also which one is more reliable):

Samsung pros:

1) Comes with a free game
2) 8GB more storage
3) Newer drive

Corsair pros:

1) Cheaper
2) Faster
3) Widely available

Thanks in advance, and while i'm at it, would you recommend a SSD over a HDD right now because of the prices?

Option 3: Crucial M4 128GB for $210. That's what I would get if I were you.

Of the two options I would recommend the samsung.

I would always recommend an SSD over an HDD for the boot drive, regardless of the price. I would recommend an HDD for mass storage of things like movies and videos. My system has both.

Thanks for that, the m4 it is then. I want to use that for my games because i dobt nesd alot of space (Skyrim, Minecraft, Counterstrike Souce, MW3 and BF3, thats about it.

For my boot drive I was considering the Force GT since its the fastest drive i could find.

Thanks!
