to expensive. I need 2 SSDs for that. besides I'm using RAID0 (on 2x320gb HDDs) usualy cos I need performance. All the important stuff I keep on external singe HDD drives so if I loose array I don't really care (never happened to me). But I like to take an image of OS once per month so if something goes wrong... and I never use win system protection, I just don't like it. norton ghost was the best thing for me.
cheers.

You didn't get it from Newegg did you? It's only $640 @ Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-830-Series-MZ-7PC512B-Internal-2-5-Inch/dp/B0077CR6B0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1333308587&sr=8-3

Yup that's why I decided to go for it. Saw prices going up on other sites and the m3 out of stock so...screw it! smile.gif

Thanks for the post regardless. thumb.gif

Probably a silly question - but will ask anyway. I was reading about people getting varying problems with their SSDs and performance. It seemed to be due to not setting the drive to AHCI and having it in a marvell or ASMedia SATA port (instead of the Intel one).

I take it if I were to get the ASUS P9X79 -- I'd be all set if I use one of the intel SATA6 ports for my SSD. I'll be making sure I have the latest firmware on everything before I begin to avoid any hassle right away as well.

Thanks for all the info/responses - it has helped on making the appropriate hardware choices smile.gif

I picked up the following 512GB SSD on eBay for $500

http://www.ebay.com/itm/280857187741?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

I've haven't looked at any benchmarks or anything yet, but soon as I saw it, I pulled the trigger. I have never had a SSD before, did I make the right choice here?

definitely a steal at that price, this SSD is one of the best.

Just ordered a 512gb 830 from Amazon as well. I had some gift cards so it brought my total down to $460 w/ Prime overnight shipping, should be here on Tuesday. The Samsung will be replacing a 120gb Corsair Force, I'll probably pick up an inexpensive 2.5 external case and use the Corsair for occasional movie transfers.
