Need help buying an SSD.

I am looking to buy an SSD to pretty much just put Windows 7 on for faster boot time and loading files. I was wondering how many GB is enough for something like that and any recommendations is awesome too thanks.

Im looking to stay under $100 if at all possible.

  1. If you're buying from newegg or other retailers, try searching for some great deals. I believe newegg has a ton of 120GB SSDs right now below $100 (I think there's an Intel 330 so I would recommend that)

    Anything over 120GB would be good, the bigger the better.

    A 60GB would just be filled up way too quickly with windows files and programs.

    If your motherboards supports Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) a 60GB SSD would be a decent purchase, I personally use IRST and absolutely love it.
  3. 120/128GB should be fine like others said. Stay away from Sandforce based drives, as always.

    Samsung 840 going for 99$ sounds like a good buy to me.
  4. ^ do you mean SRT?

    Can you describe IRST further? Im not sure if my MoBo supports it.
