Hey, I need some help choosing between the 128gb 840 pro SSD and the 250 840 SSD.

I trying to decide should I chose performance over space? My budget is around $170. I will mainly use this drive as a main system drive and for storing games. I think the main two differences between these drives are the write speeds. Should I give up a 100gb of space for faster write speeds or will the difference really be unnoticeable?

Both of these drives comes with a game as a plus.

I already have a 60gb Vertex Agility 3 SSD that I been using as a boot drive but that thing gets full so quick. So what do yall think?

Thanks

I think that you should get the 240gb SSD because you not going to be always writing to the drive and to give up 100 gb is not worth the extra write speed. The write speed is still faster then a conventional hard drive and won't be that noticeable. I think if you wrere going to be constantly writing to the drive then maybe it would be a consideration. Now if you were able to come up with another $100........

Yep. The difference between the two is really only in the numbers - get the larger drive.
