Hi again. I was wondering if someone could give me some suggestions for a good quality ssd for my gaming rig. All I want to do is run my OS on it. I have heard a lot of people praise them. I have also heard that people say that files randomly get dumped into them. Is that just because they don't know how to direct their files to the ssd? Also I would like a suggestion on which one I should purchase if I do. I would like a speedy and reliable drive hopefuly under $200. Thank you folks in advance.
My first choice would be the Samsung 840 Pro 256 gb but it is over your budget . I just picked one up and will be installing it shortly. It replaces a Samsung 830 just because I can't resist new hardware.
Yeah I've been checking all kinds of em out. I don't really know too much about ssd's so it's a little confusing. It's kinda hard to try to base a purchase on reviews. There is always someone who's had some crazy problem with everythung.
When I look at reviews I try to take an average like at Newegg where they give from one to five eggs. I take the four and five and aadd them and then the one and two and add them then I see what the three eggts are saying and swing those one way or the other and come up with a number that is either telling me it's good or bad. Motherboards are the worst you can almost never get a MBs reviews up over 60% positive and if you look at them you'll almost not want to buy any MB.
I have used the Samsung 830 and can tell you that if you can aford the price then it's a good SSD to get.
The 120GB Cosair Force 3 is on sale at Fry's for $60.00 after rebate with 500+ read and writes! While I'm responding maybe someone knows the answer to this question, can I run 2 of the above Cosair's and 2 1TB WD Black's in raid 10 and any benefits?
