If you have more RAM than you'll ever use, it's ok to turn down the page file, but if you have an SSD that means your page file will be that much faster. I wouldn't recommend doing that straight away though if you don't know how much total commit you'll need.
Also, I'm in the same situation as the OP. I'm looking for a 120 GB+ SSD, my budget is $200-250.
Originally I was just going to go with the M4, but how does the 830 compare? Also, what about the performance pro?
Same price on Newegg, and it has the same reads but almost double the writes.
It would be for my laptop, which is only SATA II. It seems to me that you can get a SATA III SSD that's either super fast in reads and a little slower in writes or better in writes and a little slower in reads. Sicne I can't take advantage of the full read speeds, does it make sense to get something with higher writes if the read is lower?
