Question about SSDs on Newegg Tags: Homebuilt SSD Accessories Systems Product Last response: June 6, 2012 10:54 PM in Systems Share Aleonris June 5, 2012 11:37:59 PM I ma currently building a PC on Newegg. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... This is the SSD I have chosen, but then I noticed that it is in the "Laptop Accessories" tag. Will it still work for my desktop? More about : question ssds newegg terryd75 June 5, 2012 11:49:05 PM The answer is yes, it will defnitely work in your desktop. Those drives come with adaptors to make them fit into the larger hdd slots in your case. have fun! m 0 l slicedtoad June 5, 2012 11:49:52 PM yes it will. The reason they list it for laptops is because of the form factor. Most SSDs are the size of laptop HDDs and a desktop can take any size. Any reason why you want that ssd though? Intel's are reliable but very overpriced. m 0 l Related resources Question about SSDs? - Forum Question about SSDs? - Forum Question about SSDs - Forum Question about HHDD (Hybrid Hard drives) and SSDs - Forum Quick question about SSDs? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Most SSDs are the size of laptop HDDs and a desktop can take any size. Any reason why you want that ssd though? Intel's are reliable but very overpriced. I want one because I am currently building a gaming PC. I will install my OS and most-used video games on it. It doesn't have to be intel, I will probably buy this. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... m 0 l slicedtoad June 6, 2012 12:10:51 AM I'd get the 128GB crucial m4 if you want high reliability: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... or a mushkin if you want high speed at a low cost with decent reliability: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... Or the Samsung 830 which is both reliable, fast and decently priced but not available from the Canadian Newegg: http://www.amazon.ca/64GB-2-5-SATA-III-SSD/dp/B0077CR5R... I doubt you'd notice the speed differences between any of them anyway. Only benchmarks really show much difference. Compared to an HDD they are all blazingly fast. So space + reliability are usually more important than speed. m 0 l jjd712 June 6, 2012 12:41:41 AM I would recommend a OCZ Vertex 4. i have one and i boot to windows in under 45 seconds. haven't had a single problem yet m 0 l slicedtoad June 6, 2012 3:15:59 AM 45 seconds to boot to windows? or boot to windows and load all startup programs? My m4 can boot to windows in 15-20 seconds and it's a bit slower than the vertex 4... you might want to look into that. m 0 l Aleonris June 6, 2012 12:42:02 PM From what I can see, the one I had posted seems very reliable and is faster than most of the SSDs I have found at 120GB. Either these two now. Decided to get a 240GB SSD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... m 0 l slicedtoad June 6, 2012 10:54:56 PM The corsair force 3 isn't a bad price. I'd go for that. It's sandforce, which is slightly less reliable but very fast. It's still quite reliable though, so it a good choice. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
