Got a question that's been bothering me, what happened to Enigma? Haven't seen him on here for a while?

He got banned quite a few months ago, I have no idea why. Too bad though. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif UnimatrixZero is his kid, so sometimes Enigma will still comment through him

Thanks for the help! Thinking about either of these two SSDs now:

Well firstly you linked an Intel SATAII drive in comparison to a Crucial SATAIII drive so it depends which technology you want. If your board supports SATAIII then get a SATAIII.

Here is a benchmark I use.

If I had to do it again, I would buy OCZ SSDs, I don't care what everyone says. But if I had to recommend, I would tell you to buy Crucial M4. The Marvell controller on the drive is one of the most reliable out there (just writing what I'm reading throughout the forum). The only problem that Marvell had was with their controller installed on all X58 Motherboards, which maxed out at 400MB/s and if you had a drive like let's say" a Vertex 3 MI (like I had with my Sabertooth X58) which it has speeds of 500/550 MB/s you will be lucky if you get anything close to 170/280 MB/s. Then again SSD's have come a long way. So what ever your choice, you won't regret it. I've been using a Agility 3 120GB for the past 10 months, and never had an issue with it (knock on wood).

Honesly i do not like any other company besides INTEL for ssd,

as intel has a amazing reputation behind them and a great customer service as it is some of the best in the world.

so im really bias to the intel ssd,

Intel also does make some of the fastest ssd on the market to this date, and they will continue to make the fastest i beliver.

there 5 series is just amazing quick,
there 3 series is also nothing to be messed with only falling slightly behind of the m4 by cruciel. ocz are ok but not my fav.

also 3gb vs 6gb wont matter alot for the ssd, as intel sata2 is beating out sata3 drives,

If im correct in ssd ranking it foes something like this

1) Intel 5series Sata3
2) Cruciel m4
3) Intel 3series Sata2

its soemthing like that, it have a 3 series and it blows away everything my os boots in 7sec.
all application are stupid qucik you will enjjoy the 3 series as it low on price and really fast.

Thanks for the help guys. The Intel one went on sale for $80 for 80 GB so I ended up getting it. After reviewing the chart hellphyre provided though, I'm worried it won't be nearly as fast as the Crucial. Might have to return to get the Crucial instead! I really shouldn't impulse buy so much redface.gif

No problem, I got the same ssd that you just bought,

Honestly though you will not see that much of a speed boost with getting the m4,
the m4 is great but not that much better as a 320.

the 320 i also got on sale at bestbuy for 80dollars what a great price it was, its super quick, all my stuff loads amazing fast.

Also remember that the m4 is smaller in size,

which in my opinion outways the speed performence.
the more stuff i can store on the drive to make other programs go faster the better,
So you can fit more programs on the intel to make then go faster then you can with the m4,

Also after getting rid of alot of the windows stuff that i didnt need, i was able to get windows 7 ultimate install down to 20gb it was quite good.

So i have 57gb or something like that left on my intel ssd, so i could install games or anything else i wanted on it to make it go faster which is what i would suggest.


But it is your money and your computer, that just my 2cents i did this same type of thinking if i should get the m4 or intel, but i went with intel cause the price and size and the amazing customer support by intel and warrenty.
