Hello guys, I'm building a new rig and I'm planing to get an SSD that supports SATA3.My budget is around 60-70 pounds max and i will buy it from Amazon UK as they ship to my country.
I would be very greateful if you could recommend me an SSD that fits my needs. I realize that my budged will allow me to get an SSD up to 120 GB.

if you want to squeeze more budget, this crucial m4 is solid quality+performance ssd

I'd advise either the Crucial m4, like what was recommended, or an OCZ Vertex 4.

The Samsung 830 is a great drive, yes, but I wouldn't say it's quite on top, bang-for-the-buck wise.

For £60-70, you are looking at 64gb and some 90gb SSDs.

64gb will give you bad bang for the buck. Speeds of SSDs goes up with capacity. I wouldn't dare by less than 90gb.

Depends ont he price you pay. I paid $89 for mine and they came with a game, Arkham city that I sold for $35, so $55 is a Steal even today! I bought 3 btw.
