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.

    below that price point, you will only get 120 crxppy ssd or 64GB quality

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
