Best SSD for me?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What SSD would be enough to store my OS and applications being:

Windows 7 Ultimate
Steam
Itunes
Utorrent
Winrar
Daemon Tools
Firefox
Safari
GPUz
CPUz
CoreTemp
PC Wizard
Spybot S&D
Avast and AVG
MSI Afterburner

There are some other applications and gadgets but I forget because I'm on vacation and not at my gaming computer right now.

Help would be great.

Everything except Steam and iTune library will take less than 20GB.

Steam can take anywhere from 100MB to 1TB.... install Steam on a HDD, move games to the SSD.
Once again...

I'd say get 2 in a RAID 0. You'll be much happier.
Besides, you didn't say how much you wanted to spend.

I have had two 60's in a raid 0 and the 120 GB was more than enough for apps. Then my raid broke and went to 1 and 60 was kinda close, had to keep it cleaned up. Now have a 90 and it is just about right. I would try to hand around the 120 GB for best over all .

I think a 60gb sandforce will be right for you, plus you could install all your steam games on your 1tb raid config.
