Which SSD for New Builder

Last response: in Storage

I have narrowed my storage configuration down to two options for my first build.

I can either get just this SSD:
Samsung MZ-7TD250BW 840 Series Solid State Drive (SSD) 250 GB Sata 2.5-Inch

OR I can get this SSD and this HDD:
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

What do you guys think? I do expect to play a number of large games, but I've only managed to fill up about 175GB on my current drives (of which I may transfer less than half to the new storage). Thank you all in advance!

Go for the Samsung 840 250GB. If you find you need more space in the future, you can always add a HDD. Splurge on the better SSD for right now, it will be the better long term decision.

Sounds like a plan, thanks!

I agree with Ryan. I do not trust OCZ SSDs.
