Suggest me a SSD for my rig

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've heard about SSD a lot doe I never had one but all the people say postive things about it so I think this upgrade is definitely worth it as I've heard it can reduce loading times , pings & fps? nope & the computer boots a lot faster with a SSD compared to a mechanical hard drive or a hybrid drive I plan to use the SSD as my primary drive for Windows & important games & my 1tb hard drive as a secondary drive for softwares etc I've a 240gb SSD in mind for now from what I've heard Corsair & Samsung's SSDs are the best & Kingston's new SSDs are inferior ( although Kingston ones are cheap ) what kind of a SSD would yall recommend for my pc , I've 100$ budget

4th gen i5
Windows 10 x64 pro
2x8 ( 16gb ) ddr3 1600mhz Corsair vengeance
1tb SATA III Seagate 7200rpm
Gigabyte gtx 750 ti 2gb oc windforce 2x edition
Gigabyte h81 mobo
Creative 7.1 sound card
Seasonic 500watts 80+bronze certified psu
Corsair carbide 200R with three Corsair AF 120mm fans & one Xigamatech 140mm fan

I've had great luck with Samsung SSDs. I have a total of 8 of them currently in use. (5) 850 EVO drives, (1) 850 PRO, and (3) 840 EVO.

They've been great for me. The only other ones I have are two old intel SATA 3Gb/s 80 gig drives that I use for boot drives in security DVR computers that don't read/write the drive very much at all. I haven't messed with kingston so I can't say anything about them.

Samsung 850 Pro (10yr warranty) ---> ~ ~$120 for 256GB, ~ $200 for 512GB , ~ $400 for 1TB
Samsung 850 Evo (5yr warranty) ---> ~ $80 for 250GB, ~ $150 for 500GB , ~ $300 for 1TB
Samsung 750 Evo (3yr warranty) ---> ~$80 for 250GB
Crucial MX200 (3yr warranty) --> ~ $80 for 250GB, ~$140 for 500GB , ~ $280 for 1TB

It won't improve ping but will improve load times for Windows and whatever applications you run (games , software) , antivirus/malware scans , file copy times

The 850 Evo is currently the "sweet spot" between price, performance and AFAIK reliability. This is what I've chosen for my rig.

Samsung evo 250gb in my country is like 120$ I found Corsair 240GB SOLID STATE DRIVE LE (CSSD-F240GBLEB) for 77$ is the corsair one alright ?

I'd look at a SanDisk X400, with your budget you could spend an extra $15-20 right? You can pick up the 512GB version when it goes on sale. Typically it drops to $115-120, at least the sales I've seen... I myself am picking up the m.2 variant because eventually I'll upgrade to an m.2 motherboard. I'm just using an adapter right now to SATA III... Gives me the flexibility to use it now but also the form factor I want down the road when I do get a m.2 motherboard... thumb.gif

I couldn't find much about the LE series of Corsair except for good reviews on Newegg & also one person ran tests & the speeds are pretty similar to a Samsung Evo I'd get a Samsung evo but in my country they're expensive they're like 120$ over here the Corsair 240gb LE SSD its 77$ here

Here are the speeds of the test he ran of the Corsair LE SSD
