post #21 of 47
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I'm looking at an OCZ Vertex 2 60 gig. Is that going to suit me nicely?

Go for whichever is cheapest at this capacity: Crucial, OCZ, Intel - would be the ones I'd consider.

You should be fine. How much ram do you have?

Are you trolling?

You can find 64gb Crucial C300's for about $100 which are pretty good ssd's.

Just remember that your pagefile takes up 8gb and your hybernation/fast user switching file takes up another 8gb. 16gb total on top of everything else you intend to install.

You can get this 60gig OCZ Vertex 2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227550


That's $90 after the rebate. I have been looking at smaller SSDs and the 32gig ones cost just as much. Am I missing something here?
