    Hello mrwil,

    I would recommend the Crucial M4 128GB. $124.99

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148442

    It is fast, and reliable. I'm currently using it in my computer now - no BSODS, no problems.

    Basically - any SSD will open up your programs much faster.


    You do realize you will have to re-install everything if you want to run all your programs/OS on your SSD right?

    Edit: To mount your SSD in your case your case will either need 2.5" holder's or you might need a 2.5"->3.5" bracket for your SSD.
  5. thnx Chainzsar and Lazdaa i will be going with the Crucial m4 128gb.
    and yes @ Chainzsaw i know i have to re install everything but no biggie and i think i have a holder/bracket some where laying around.

  7. my ssd came with the bracket
  8. I have used Crucial M4. It is great and you must know something about alignment http://www.ssdhdd.org/alignment/partition-alignment.html. I just figure it out these days.
  9. i should of got it from amazon but don't like the taxes got it from newegg but the shipping is so slow -_- ups to usps
