Suggest an Upgrade to my System - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
What about selling my Samsung 840 Pro and getting one of the PCIe SSD drives such as (I'd still have to research to find the right one but) this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147366

These reviewers are saying it almost doubles the speed of the 840 Evo. Unless you have to run Windows 8 instead of 7 though, which one reviewer seemed to suggest. I'm not going to upgrade to Windows 8 right now, especially for an extra 100 dollars.

You will hardly notice any real world difference. PCi-E SSDs may be marketed at gamers but they really don't offer much to them at all. And at that small size of a drive I don't see any real benefits over your EVO. If you need more SSD storage I'd recommend just getting a 500GB drive for $180-$200 (some have been on sale for as cheap at $150 recently).

forget the pci-e SSD drives. They are not a ton faster until you move into the 512gb+ territory.

You will be much better off finding two or three 120-240gb SSDs and throwing them into a RAID array.

My brother has a PNY 240gb he bought for $90 on black Friday, and he said it made a pretty large difference in his gaming. He was originally on the "peppy" intel 320 series 120gb I gave him a few years ago.


2 good SSD's in RAID will net you a minimum 4-500 MBs consistently reading, and probably sustain over 150MBs writing regardless of file size and count.
