That's just a start.

If you go to Anandtech's website and compare the two, the m4 wins the majority of tests.

Anandtechs benchmarks are down? and I would look on the Seans SSD buyers guide. Here's their read and write speeds in Crystal Disc Mark:
M4 (Click to show)
376
Force3 (Click to show)
338

Lots more too

I personally have a 64GB M4 and I really like it, but it gets beat like a red-headed step child by the Samsung 830 series when you go 64 GB on both. It's not even close towards the bottom of the page. frown.gif

Oh wells....I still like my M4.

No, not at all.

The Force 3 is a fast ssd. The m4 is slightly faster.

Neither you or I would be able to tell the difference in day to day usage. This can be said for virtually all newer ssd.

What matters is that they are all so much faster than hdd are.

My 9600GSO does not support my old monitor for some reason.

Uh, I'm pretty sure a $30+ videocard is just as important a buy as a $150+ SSD. Come on, dude.

EDIT: Oh, "headless" system? Guess I see something new everyday...

A $30 gfx sure is important. But I cannot shell out money for more parts right now. The plan is to work during Summer after classes are over, then get a ~$200 gfx. Until then the rig is doing what is does and I shall not be tempted to start gaming anytime soon.

Oh and maybe get a new monitor as well then.

Wise choice. You should sell that "incompatible" card off, though, so that when the time comes to buy a card you actually have a decent amount of money to do so.

Your onboard will be about as good as most cards up to the ~$50 price point, and for gaming anything less than around $100 is a waste of money and time. A good $100+ card will last you 3+ years of gaming easily. Not ultra settings gaming, but you won't be crying about not meeting minimum specs either. For $200+ you should definitely check out the 7870 unless Keplar comes up with something in that price range just as great.

EDIT: Meant the 7850. 7870, while a lot better, is also $100 more.
