Hello,

Im building a gaming PC and I still need to choose a good SSD, I'm deciding between these 4:

-SanDisk Extreme SSD 120GB(540 Read/460 Write) - €94.90
-Samsung SSD 830 Series 128GB(520 Read/320 Write) - €105.90
-Samsung SSD 830 Series 128GB(525 Read/320 Write) - Desktop Retail - €131.90
-Samsung SSD 830 Series 128GB(500 Read/340 Write) - Retail Notebook(Can I still use it on a Desktop?) - €124.90
-OCZ Vertex 4 128GB(560 Read/430 Write)- €129.99
-Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 120GB(555 Read/510 Write) - €131.90



My build is:

i5 2500k
Asus P8Z77-M
8GB 1600MHZ DDR3 RAM
GTX 560 Ti
630W PSU

If i just go by the numbers, the Kingston is clearly the best, but i want to make sure before making a purchase.

Thanks for your help!

Sounds good! Going to order it!

May I ask why its better than the Kingston one with higher read and write speeds? are the higher speeds not noticeable so not worth the extra money?

The Kingston is bulk version, the retail one sells for 151.90.
