Get the Samsung 840 Pro trust me it's worth the extra $30 or so dollars for it. It would run circles around the Kingston HyperX 3k..

Edit: Meant MLC vs TLC sorry!

The Kingston HyperX will blow the samsung 840 right out of the water. I have a HyperX 240GB on a second comp and it runs circles around the 512GB Agility 4 SSD that I have in my main computer. I couldn't be happier with the HyperX.
