Picking a Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of getting a SSD for my main system and game files and trying to pick one that will work well for price/size/reliability but have never had a SSD before and am not familiar with most of the brands that I'm seeing. I'm thinking at least 120 GB for at most $200. It seems most of the cheaper 240/256 GB that I've looked at are either OCZ or Mushkin so was wondering if these are good brands and also if anyone can point me to which SSD/brands are better and more reliable.

Also for those that have a SSD or used one did you notice a significant increase in speed and performance? Any help/tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated thanks.

How about double the capacity, better performance, and staying within your budget thumb.gif
