Hello forums, I finally built my first PC and the one thing I am lacking is an SSD for my BOOT drive as well as for some programs/games. I was looking into the Samsung 840 PRO 256GB, but I have noticed a lot of issues with it, and can't decide which would be best.
A few others I have looked at are the Kingston Hyperx 3K, Intel 520, Crucial M4, and Plextor M5P, but I still can't decide. I am looking for something over 240GB, and would preferrably like to avoid Sandforce if what I have heard about it is really true. If someone could clarify this it would be greatly appreciated.
So, which SSD would be good for everyday use, OS, and a few high intensity games like Crysis and Battlefield 3?
Thank you for any assistance you can provide as I plan on ordering tonight or in a day or two.
P.S. The Plextor M5P is $209 on Newegg but won't be back in stock until Weds. Also, I have to pay a tax because of where I live.
