Hello, I'm looking to start a new build finally and was wondering which SSD I should get. Which would you recommend and why?

I am mainly using this for gaming. I would like something quick and reliable. Also I've read that higher IOPS are better for gaming; helps load maps quicker??


Thank you!

while a sandforce based SSD WILL outperform the M4 on tests with compressible data( and due to the fact that its compressible, store more) there are 2 major reasons to go for the M4

1) The M4 uses sycronous controlers, meaning it will move Uncompressable data MUCH faster
2) The M4 has less Firmware problems, leading to a better user experience

Edit:Changed Sandybridge to Sandforce

Speaking from experience as I am currently RMA'ing my Kingston drives with newegg and waiting for my refund...get the M4.

The chances of getting a drive without issues is not worth it. I thought speed would be worth any issues, but it wasn't. Don't make my mistake.
