Hello,

I just sold a "old" pc (i3 530,2*2GB, 500GB HDD, 460GTX Hawk) and wanted some advice on purchasing a new one.

I'm planning to build a small pc adding later a midrange graphics card... for now my budget allows me:

case Fractal design Core 1000
cpu Intel i3 2100
mb MSI H67MA-E35 (B3)
psu Seasonic S12 II 430w
ram Kingston 2*2GB@1333MHz

Now my question:
I won't need too much on storing (thanks ACTA), I would like speed, so my budget would allow now a SSD
Which one should I choose?

Samsung 830, 128GB
Crucial RealSSD m4 128GB
SanDisk G25-G3 Extreme 120 GB

later I'll add maybe an Ivybridge quadcore cpu and some midrange card (something from nvidia, maybe a 660 or 650 or the older 560ti)

Thanks for any advice or help
Firion

Either the 830 or the Crucial. I think the Samsung is 20$ more but faster. Your choice.

Have you not considered an OCZ agility? They're very cheap with great read/write speeds. A lot of people think they're unreliable and return them.. but there is no problem with the drives at all so don't listen to the reviews. It's a simple PEBKAC error. (Problem exists between keyboard and chair). They just need a firmware update and they're ready to go!

Well cheap would also be the Kingston SSDNow V+200 SSD 120 GB, even fast on paper. But I kind of don't trust OCZ, Corsair, Crucial, AData, Geil and so on. Intel would have been nice but they are way out of range.

Thanks for your opinion, I'll take a look at OCZ then.
