Im looking to get a 60gb ssd for gaming apps. What is the correct type and can I use a ssd for this?
hello... yes... if you have a an open SATA port/connector... typical new units will be SATA 3 6Gb/s communication... they are backward compatable with your SATA 2 3Gb/s port...
If $ is a issue or ON SALE... An older SATA 2 SSD can give you a wonderful computer experience... BUT... now days, 60 GB will not hold very many FULL game installs... and is typically used for OS installs.
You should be able to use most SSDs, I would recommend to buy a SATA 6 Gb/s drive, because you maybe want to use it some time.
I like the Samsung SSDs, but there are no 64 GB drive anymore. I would suggest going with the Samsung 840 120 GB.
