I am looking to purchase either a samsung 830 128gb ssd or Sandisc Extreme 128gb ssd so as to allow me to transfer my operating system ( win7 64 home premium ), office and World of warcraft onto.
Main reasons for wanting to do this apart from getting very fast boot up is to improve game performance.
Although I know it wont give any more frames per second as it will only improve loading and reading times, WOW is constantly reading from the hard disk and in some raiding environments I sometimes see a slight stuttering which I believe is down to the communication with the conventional hard drive I have installed ( 500gb seagate barracuda ).
However - I am a little worried as I've read a few conflicting articles saying that putting WOW on a SSD will significantly wear it out due to the level of read and writes. Others have had no problems.
I'd like to get some opinions from more experienced and knowledgeable people out there - I don't want to spend out the money just for it to boot quicker.
PS - My system is:
Gigabyte Z68 m/b
8g/b crucial ballistix sport 1600mhz ram
xfx 5770 1gb GPU
HD ( as above )
