post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Im looking for a SSD to put my games on, and os on.

Also would getting a Z68 board add something to the SSD or not really. (sorry havent been following z68 been out of town for a while now)

Im thinking maybe..... 60 or so gb? or would i need more.

Let me know thank you.

budget dosent really matter

The Crucial M4 is about the most stable 60ish GB SSD out there as it uses the Marvell controller as opposed to sand force. I'd recommend that one.

60gb isn't going to be enough. I have a 60gb Corsair SSD for my OS. After I installed Windows 7 64 on it and a handful of low profile programs, I have under 30gb left on it. 30gb is only enough space for 2 or 3 games, after that you'll be completely out of room.

By the way, I have never had a single issue with my Corsair drive. My OS boots completely up in a matter of seconds and all programs are up with the click of my mouse.

Just a small advice though bud, a SSD doesn't do a whole lot for a game. It makes load times faster, and thats about it. So if you wanted to use a SSD for your OS and a few programs like me, then a nice regular Hard drive for your games, that would be a much cheaper answer.

i need faster load times, thats why im buying an ssd. i just need to put about 2 games on there at a time at the most along with my os and a few startup programs.

ill place the majority of my games on my hard drive.

do you suggest 120 gb then just for more storage for maybe other things.

If all you plan on going with is two games at a time, I would say you could get by with the 64gb that was suggested to you by the other memeber. That will give you about 35gb to play with after your OS install. You should be fine, and you will see a difference that you won't believe.

I love having a z68. The 32GB drive makes my 2TB main drive seem almost as fast as the SSD! I never have to worry about which drive to store stuff on.
