I heard overloading an SSD is not good, should I go for the 60Gb? Or pay more for the 120gb?

If you can afford it, do it. You will be good for future activities like more game installs , multi OS boots etc. and no worry for drive space.

Would WoW benefit on that SSD?

Isn't Vertex 2 120Gb Extended better for my use?

I ended up buying a 256 and was worth every penny man ... so it reall comes down ot the money ... i say go for the 128gb hdd I think they are even cheaper ... but up to you and how much money you can let go ... why go small when you might have a problem ... but if you go big you will never go back man ...


My vote 120gb.

I only intend so put Win7 + WoW on it

And might as well put Bad Company 2 / Black Ops.


Is the C300 128Gb worth it over the Vertex 2 120Gb Extended?

Those programs you mention wont even take up 100mb.
Isn't there some good 80gb, I found that a sweet spot. Of course mine is a little older and I haven't kept track of all the SSDs released.

I say go for 120GB one, then you would not have to worry about space requirements. I see you have a good built, so money shouldn't be a matter I guess.

* A-DATA S599 Series
* Corsair Force Series
* Mushkin Callisto Series
* OCZ Vertex 2 Series
* OWC Mercury
* Patriot Inferno Series

Edit: Found the list

Anyway they are all basically the same drive using SAndforce 1222 with their own firmware flavouring. The real SSD beats them in Seq reads because of SATA 6 Gbps, but it is nothing really worth paying extra for. Choose whatever is cheapest.

Your board supports 6gb/s so yes it will be. The C300 is the fastest consumer level SSD right now as long as you have the 6gb/s sata on your mobo to use it.

Someone's gonna jump on me for beign so vague i'm sure so let me clarify. Games load sequentially so the higher sequential speed, the faster your game load times. OS however is another story, OS uses random speeds so if you are wanting your OS to be the main priority on your drive, you're better off with a Callisto or Vertex 2. Either way any ssd you get is going to make your OS faster than any HDD you've ever owned.

Hey there. I am currently running what you had in mind, OS + WoW on an SSD, and if I could go back, I would get a bigger SSD. The drive is 84% full with as many SSD tweaks I can find to free up some space (ie. hibernate off, system restore off, etc). WoW is taking up 22GB. It sounds like the perfect size, but it was a hassle getting Cata to install.

After downloading Cata, I tried installing it but I did not have enough room to uncompress and install. So I had to uninstall and delete the whole WoW folder and download the trial version. Why the trial version? Because it is a small version of WoW and it downloads the content you need as you explore. Later on, I found out I had all the old patch files in the WoW folder and that was taking ~8GB of space.

I did try out WoW on my normal F3 spinpoint and I really noticed the load times. After the launcher, getting to the login page was alot slower than on the SSD. It is tolerable, but I just got used to the SSD speed and really like the quickness of it. Loading screens were different also. I did not notice anything else, but I also did not have it long on the F3. I later on moved it back onto the SSD.
