Help! I'm trying to decide between 3 SSDs that all have pretty good prices and reviews. I'm new to building PCs, and I don't know too much about each individual brand.

My choices are as follows:

#1: Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F60GB3A-BK 60GB $79.99 + 8.66% sales tax - $20

#2: Patriot 60GB 2.5" SATA III 6Gb/s Pyro Solid State Drives $79.99 + 8.66% sales tax - $30
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

#3: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR60GB 2.5" 60GB $59.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Is there any reason why I should go with one versus another? Or should I go with the cheapest (#2 requires a mounting bracket though)?

Thanks,
Jack

Get the corsair force series GT CSSD-F90GBGT-BK 2.5" 90GB for $80 after MIR.

If you can spend more get the 120GB/128BG.

Also if you can wait for sale, newegg had SAMSUNG 830 Series 128GB for sale $85 last week.

Thanks for your answer, however this appears out of my price range. If I had spare money in my PC build budget, it will be going towards other parts. I prefer these three items above or similarly priced items.

So take the #2.

What case you have? If you case don't come w/ bracket, yes you need it and check out this from http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

@Cin: Alright, I'll look into the Patriot. Thanks, other opinions on the three are welcome.

And @Intel: meh. I'd consider the SSD330 at $69.99, but unless it has bewtter features to justify its price versus #1-3 above other than its brand name, I doubt I'll get it.

Do you know about the daily deals? Tom's Hardware usually has a link to the daily deals listed at LogicBuy. You can find it in the news section on the left hand side of the home page.

LogicBuy has a page of sale prices and special promotions just for drives:

But that's not all. LogicBuy also has a daily top 5 ssd deals:
