Manufacturer: FOXCONN
Model: H55M-S (CPU 1)

What would the best SSD's be for my motherboard? I'm looking at buying an SSD (120/128GB) but I don't want to buy something that won't work!

Suggestions? :)

Isn't the write on the Crucial M4's quite low?

The lowest write speed of the crucial M4 (175MB/sec) is still much faster than even an 10K RPM HDD, not to mention - the SSD can keep up the maximum write speed (up to a point) whereas a HDD cannot.

Unless you are doing video editing/RAW image file transfer's all the time - you don't need much write speed for SSD's. The main thing about SSD's is their very low latency read speed.

Do you have any other drives that can write at 175MB/Sec? If not...you shouldn't worry about the "low" write speed.

I'm using the M4 currently - and I don't notice the "low" write speed. All of my other drives cannot even reach the write speed of my SSD. The closest that my drives get to that speed is my 64GB USB key which can R/W about 120MB/S.

My computer boots up in about 15~ seconds, that's to desktop - and ready to launch any programs.

Vertex 4

New OCZ Firmware Boosts Vertex 4 Performance Up to 210%

I own two Crucial M4 (64GB boot drive and 256GB games drive).

But with only 124GB of space I'm guessing you want this as a boot drive with enough space for a few program's (Office, anti viruse etc) if this is the case then the write speed won't make any difference because once you install the data your not going to be putting more and more on the drive. It's the read speeds that make the biggest differences on SSD.

Samsung 830....pretty good and reliable

Crucial M4 is also good

I would also suggest the Vertex 4 for its awesome performance, however I can't see myself recommending something that was just released.

Crucial M4 + 830 have been out for a long time now, and haven't had any major issues (besides the crucial 5184Hr bug, which was ironed out a long time ago).
