SSD brands which to choose

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm building a new gaming rig and would really like a small SSD for my OS

although there are a lot of brands out there and surely some better than others, iv'e personally been looking at OCZ or kingston.

Iv'e been told that SSD's have a smaller lifespan then mechanical drives, but since i'll be using mine for OS it's crucial that it will be stable and honestly i have no idea how much write a OS does but wanted to hear you guys on this.

hope you can help me shed some light on these two subjects

Thank you for the answers in advance.

Intel,
Crucial,
OCZ,
Kingston,

If looking for a good SSD try to find ones that have a SATA III interface as they tend to have a higher bandwidth also 128GB and above ones tend to be unlimited from Factory,
