Hello all. I am going getting ready to start my first ever rig build. I wanted to have an ssd drive in it and I was wondering what some of your experiences with ssd's have been? I am trying to choose between the three below.


Agility 4 AGT4 Series AGT4-25SAT3-128 128GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) with Indilinx Everest 2 Controller $94.99


Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 128GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Desktop Solid State Drive (SSD) with 3-core MCX Controller $69.99


Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC128D/AM 128GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Kit with 3-core MCX Controller $129.99



I am not really sure the of the differences between the 3 in terms of performance. I believe why the first one is so much cheaper is because its just the drive. Is it important to have the kit that goes with it? I have never used one of these much less built a computer so I am wondering if this would be important for a beginner? Thanks for your help in advance.

Of those, Id take the Samsung .....but any of the tier 1's suit me just fine ..... lowest cost per GB is usually the deciding factor.
