I have decided to purchase a SSD for my desktop rig. I mainly use it for gaming. I know that I am going to get ether the samsung 840 or the 840 pro. I have looked at a lot of benchmarks and know that the 840 pro performs significantly better, but what i don't know is if this carry's over to real world performance.
The 840 actually uses a newer nand, anyway the 840 pro is much faster and more expensive. If your going to game on it then I would recommend the 840 pro at least there you will be able to notice the difference in load times.
