I am looking at the Samsung 830 128gig ssd, and am planning on using it primarily for my OS (obviously) and for a few games. While looking for the right ssd, I noticed that many ssds had very high sequential read/write speeds, but they all seem to have about the same 4k read/write speeds.

In your opinion which do you all think is best for the OS and gaming? 4k or sequential?

Thanks in advance.

Here is the SSD I am looking at

One more thing to add - having a high 4KB random read is also good in addition to sequential read access.
