Hey, can anyone please find me a good SSD (one that will NOT break down after 1 day) on a budget?
This is the info:
Budget: $200, but I can go up to $300 if it is really good (I.E. 500g..?)
Specifications: It should be a total of around 256gb minimum, and it should work with my system:
CPU: i7-3770k(3.50GHz)-might overclock because it is liquid cooled, but I don't know yet.
GPU: GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB-might overclock too at some point (next year...?)
Ram: 16GB DDR3 1333 (4GB x 4)
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H
HDD: 1TB SATA III
SSD: OCZ RevoDrive RVDHY-FH-1T PCI-E 1TB Hybrid Solid State Drive PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Case: NZXT PHANTOM 410 GAMING CASE WHITE
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
Samsung, Crucial and Intel have the best reputations for reliability.
There have been some amazing SSD sales lately. If you are willing to wait a bit and check deal sites like slickdeals.net every day you can get a 256GB Samsung 830 for ~$200. The Crucial M4 is also still a great drive and usually quite a bit cheaper than the Samsung. I have also read Intel is dropping their prices soon but I'm not sure on what models.
