you dont need thunderbolt just yet.

aglity 3 is almost garbage. get a samsung 830 256gb.

heres my build id suggest getting (prices and products are from UK. if you can get your hardware in italy and from the UK you can save some cash)

830 256gb is 219euro on my site
you sure 2x 128 isn't better? , there should be better speeds
