Which SSD to buy for OS? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
i went intel because i got a good deal on them, this wek i would buy ocz because they are priced better imo.

booting is not only performance gain you will see, my vantage mark score went up 4.5K just by changing drives. can we say hdd choke point maybe?

While the operating systems overall speed will also be improved you wont actually notice it much since its the speed of the applications that you need to improve not so much the operating system which is why it would be better to use the solid state drive for the applications instead if you could afford a large enough drive

you could still get a smaller drive for the OS if you could afford that as well but like I said its best to use it for the applications so they load faster then you will start noticing improvement in performance

only performance increase you will notice with the operating system is the boot speed

128GB solid state drive would be great for a applications drive plenty of space
