Which SSD to get

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I want to put a few SSDs in my PC.
i want one designated for OS and Apps (which will be partitioned in half if need be) and one for games.

i think 90 gig would be fine for OS and apps and
This one for my games

i don't know too much about SSDs let alone which brands are best.
what do you guys think i should get, i'm looking for extremely fast, like 500+ MB/s read and write speed.

thanks in advance for your help

Seems like a nice ssd, If you wanted to save some money you could go for the M4 since write seeds really aint that important.

500mb write speeds come into play so little that it's not important. And for what little writes you do, most are either music or video which are already compressed and won't be able to be written at 250mb let alone 500mb.

The Crucial M4 with newest firmware gives you 500mb read, 240mbs write, 26mb 4k and 280mb 4k-64rd with as-ssd. And it does it with both compressible and incompressible data something the Sandforce drives can't say.

I would go with the Crucial M4 128GB, I own one and I have had no problems with it. I've also read that many people have had BSOD or drives crashing with sandforce based drives.

You don't need to partition it. Speed is the same regardless. It's not like a hard drive where some parts are faster than others.

the only reason i want to partition it is because i am extremely oc about organization on my PC.
i like to have a "drive" for each different thing
ex
System
Games
Music
Videos
Applications
Backups (which also has every installer on it that i have ever used)

You could partition it like a regular hard drive if you wanted to, but I don't see any reason to.
