The 840 looks promising, but because it has no track record yet, is more expensive, and has an avg read rate of 540 vs the 830's 520 MB/s, I'd go with the 256GB Samsung 830. Remember it come in three varieties, full kit for desktop upgrade with bracket etc, bare drive, and the laptop upgrade kit. maestro0428 a b G Storage October 24, 2012 6:17:36 PM I also recommend the Sammy 830. Its fast and reliable. I use a Crucial m4 which is also a great SSD, but its slower than the 830. kieranO October 24, 2012 6:49:19 PM ok i ordered the desktop upgrade version with free norton ghost 15 XD thanks for help guys...now i gotta get a graphics card and im set Can't find your answer ?
