Solid State Drive? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Thread Starter 
I know a 128GB is better value, but too much capacity for me if I'm honest.

I was thinking an 64GB SSD just for Windows 8 and some games, then a 250GB hard drive for my very few programmes and files.

No man,i didnt want to tell you to buy 128gb drive,you can buy what ever you want i just want to tell you that if 128GB M4 have price per GB like 64GB M4,it would cost 150$ and not 129$,what is his price now.
And by the way dont even think to buy V4.Its between worst drives ever.

Don't get a 60gb ssd or a 64gb one I have one and after windows you only have 20gb of free storage which isn't enough these days and keep in mind you do not want to fill your ssd to the max you always want aleast 1-2 GB free for emergencies

Is there a performance difference between the 64GB and the 128GB Crucial M4?

Yes.
You know why you need to buy 128gb.Because when you buy 64gb and see what SSD can do,you will want to put all programs and everything that you need on SSD,and then 64gb will be small.Believe me you are not first person that came here with that thoughts,they came 10 days after screaming for more space.You need to leave 10% of SSD free,so it can have his room to make trim and garbage collection,and that 10% of 59gb(becuse you will have only that much when you format) is 6gb.So you will have only 50gb if you want SSD to function normal.
But if you dont have cash now,just go with what you can.
Do you have AHCI(you know IDE,AHCI,RAID mode) in bios.

Yeah I have AHCI, my motherboard is only Sata 3Gbp/s at the moment but I plan on getting a 6Gbp/s drive for my next upgrade. biggrin.gif

Yes. The 128GB drive has more individual NAND packages in the drive, which increases the total data throughput provided via its controller, thus improving read/write performance significantly.

If you have AHCI,thats good.
Sata2 or sata3,it doesnt matter that much for day to day use,programs and Windows are made of small data files that are not limited buy sata2.
But anyway you want to buy sata3 ssd,when you upgrade your socket you will have full speed.So if you can,buy 128gb.I see programs and Windows updates every day larger and larger.
You should read these guids before you start with installation:
