That is every current SATA 3 SSD...
I can stretch my budget to 250$ maybe a little higher. I would rather stay around 200$
You can spend ~150 on a 240/256GB drive...
if i can get the pro version with farcry 3 it would be a deal breaker cause that saves me the 60$ i am going to spend on that. I do a lot of transferring of files between 2 drives.(mods, music, and i back up tons of data.) I have a crappy hdd thats 150gb it holds me over size wise for all my mods but its so slow. Thats why i want another ssd. Right now i have a 128gb m4 that gets full quickly. I was going to use the 250gb+ drive for os and games/programs and use my 128gb for mod and data storage. I just move mods in and out of games all the time so i want crazy fast speed between the to. So in a nut shell I need a 250gb+ ssd that will be just as fast as my 128gb which is 550mb/sec read 515mb/sec write.
Those speeds are only with FULLY UNCOMPRESSED DATA. Real world your speeds are lower, especially write. You'd be disappointed with what AS SSD shows you with fully compressed data. lol
Either of the two(samsung and ocz) are ok if they can match or best those speeds on my mushkin 128gb ssd. <- thought i had a m4 crucial but its a mushkin. Its a good drive once i worked out the kinks but its capacity is just lacking.
I'd just look at what is on sale for the cheapest of any of these: http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread#user_SeansrecommendedSSDs
