Help me choose a SSD

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am in the market for an SSD.
I have looked at a few of them and can't really decide which SSD I want to get.
Budget is of running $300 and want to get the best SSD for that price.

Been looking at the Crucial C300 series and the G.Skill Sniper series but open to any SSD. I have Sata 6

Which SSD would be the best for $300 or under?

Thanks guys

our currency is different, but have you looked at the REVO drives?
or try, OCZ SSD's, high performance and low cost. Might be better if you raid 0, 2 smaller drives, instead of buying one large drive

I was thinking about that but don't I lose trim? At least thats what my little knowledge believes lol

EDIT: Also do i need to buy a bracket to mount the drive inside my case? I am getting a HAF X case along with the SSD does the HAF X supporting the SSD mounting system?

Also I have a question, when I switch to AHCI will I lose all of my date on my WD? Or will I be able to keep that data?

How big of a drive do you need?

You can switch to AHCI without losing any data...

That said... it is always recommend to backup data before installing a new primary disk or switching SATA modes.
Once again...

I am thinking 128GB is about as big as I can afford in that price range?
