Hey guys, ive had issue with my computer recently, I custom built it, running a 2500k @ 4.5 but god dam that my boot into windows are slow. Its been a while since I made the computer and it was running fine before. I thought that it might be the HDD since I didn't bought a new one when I made my computer, I used my old one.

So since I need to change my HDD, I wanted to go towards an SSD. Ive looked at these 2, is there a major difference and is there something better somewhere for a more fair price?

I dont need that much space, so a 120gb would suffice. Good or bad?

Thanks !

Both solid state drives that you linked to are okay but they are older models. There are newer models which are considered to be better.

The new trend is to purchase ssd's that do not use LSI/SandForce controllers. Some of the new ssd's with other controllers are:

Samsung 840 Pro
Samsung 840
OCZ Vector
Crucial m4
Plextor PX-M5 Pro

I maintain the ssd database listed in the sticky at the very top of this forum section. Here is the link:

Scroll down to the brands and model you are interested in and follow the links to the technical reviews.

The holidays are over in the USA. SSD prices have gone back up an average of 7% this month. A good sale price is considered to be about $0.80/GB in the USA. Prices in other countries will be different. They are usally higher.

Misguided perhaps? Well, if you have done the research you will know that sandforce, with its updated firmware, is on a roll. Here is something http://wccftech.com/review/kingston-hyperx-3k-90gb-ssd-...

During the annual Consumer Electronics Show in 2011, there were announcements about the SandForce 2281 controller. One month later Tom's Hardware published one of the first reviews of the OCZ Vertex 3 with the 2281 controller. Although there are several minor variations of the 2281, there have been no new SandForce consumer oriented controllers in the past 2 years. In the meantime other companies have moved forward.

Part of the reason for that is SandForce was aquired by LSI which is a major player in the enterprise side of the market. The acquisition was completed in January 2012. SandForce is now the Flash Components Division of LSI. The SandForce website is still online. If you take a look at it you will see that SandForce's primary focus is enterprise level controllers.

BTW - The link you posted is for a 2nd generation ssd that was released during the Summer of 2011. It is a good ssd but there are newer models that are better.
