Just like the title says...which 1 to buy? All I need is one for my OS and several other programs. All working files & games will be stored on the hd. I'll be using a MSI P55 GD65 mobo (not SATA6G compliant). Thanks in advance

I vote for the corsair IF you have to buy now. I would wait, if you would check the news then OMFGBBQ look at the new vertex! The vertex 3 has literally 2x reads/writes/IOPS of the current gen! and they will have 64gb versions.

I would pick whatever one has the best read/write mb/s

Patriot Inferno 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write, this one i think is best

Corsair f60 is the worst, writes 66 mb/s crap.

Samsung 250 MBps (read) / 170 MBps (write) / 300 mb/s trans.

Crucial Read: 355MB/s / Write: 75MB/s, not sure on the trans rates but reads good but write sucks.


***********I voted on Patriot Inferno 60G************

None of the above..

Purchase whichever SandForce based drive is on sale and in your budget.. You should be thinking warranty & support more then anything else. The drives have been out long enough that firmware is no longer a factor..

All ssd drives come with a 3 year now, at first alot didn't but seems like alot do now. As for what you should look for is read and write speeds, and isop, that what makes a good difference from alot, but a 3 year is also good. You could find one with everything mentioned above easy for low price.

I juts picked up a 80 gb ocz vertex 2 for like $160 canadian with tax came up to $180 and the SSD I got has 285 read and 275 write.

just installed windows 7 64 pro in like 10 minutes or less

get the patriot one .... It's rocking in my rig and its brilliant . I know C300 reading rate is tempting (as it was for me) but after a certain speed you wont notice much imrovement but higher writing rate is always useful !
