I am finally looking to work off a solid state drive. I want to spend anywhere from 100-200 bucks. I need something that is fast, reliable, and has a decent capacity. Probably around 120gb is all I really need. OS + 2-3games?
I also have 2x 10k rpm 120 gb hard drives in my computer. Once I build my new one with an SSD would it still be worth it to put hem in? I have a 1.5 TB 7200 hard drive in as well. Maybe its best just to use SSD+1.5Tb?
The Samsung 830 and Intel 330 don't cost that much more than the Crucial. The Intel 520 costs a fair bit more though. It does buy you extra reliability and a 5 year warranty though.
EDIT: I have the Samsung 830 myself, I have had one or two issues where it came up with an error as I was booting but I would just reset the system and it would be fine. I haven't had any real issues, I've had it around 6 months. I don't even know that the SSD is causing that problem, could be my OS installation or something.
