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! 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. Related resources A question about Sandforce controller SSDs - Forum Looking to build new computer ...

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... 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. 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 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. 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... 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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
