I ma currently building a PC on Newegg.

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?

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!

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.

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.

I'd get the 128GB crucial m4 if you want high reliability:

or a mushkin if you want high speed at a low cost with decent reliability:

Or the Samsung 830 which is both reliable, fast and decently priced but not available from the Canadian Newegg:

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.

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

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.

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.
