Seriously, these things are nuts. I recently got a 1TB Samsung 850 Pro and love it. Plenty of room for all my games plus OS (as I just recently moved my user data over to my primary side >.> ).

When it is a gift it is not so pricey.

My 250GB Corsair boot SSD is good enough for me. Sticking with my Hitachi 1TB HDD for data and my dual Intel 320's for games for now...

yep I run a WD VelociRaptor 1tb for games, everything else is on 3 ssd's of 256gb and 120gb.
I like multiple drives in case 1 fails I don't lose important stuff in large amounts as they are all backed up on multiple external hdds

Well I have the 840 EVO 1TB with only 25% left and I keep all my movies on a separate drive. It never ends. You just want more and more.

Was that a yes?

For my desktop, 128GB Sammy 840 Pro is big enough since I'm not a gamer. I could justify the cost of 500GB 840 EVOs for my notebooks but 1TB was just a wee bit too steep for me and I don't really need that much storage.

But, then again, since you're buying...

I have trouble justifying dropping 450+ on a ssd...i just keep adding cheap ssd's when I need them. My 256gb x2 raid-0 mx100's are stupid fast and just had to add one to the one i own and create a windows raid in less than a minute. I have 8+ modern blockbuster games on it and have 231gb's leftover. Next time I need space I will just add another.

I would like to replace my Corsair Force 3 250GB with a 500GB Samsung 840 Evo soon though. That would allow me to have everything I want on the system drive and use the Force 3 purely as a games drive and get rid of the old Intel 320's...

Well! If you don't want me stalking you, don't offer to give me SSDs.

Not everyone can shell out $700 for a high capacity SSD especially the PRO version from Samsung, and honestly for gaming its a waste, as cheaper SSD's will do exactly the same thing, decrease loading times. Plus that money would be better spent on new GPU, new monitor or cpu/mobo combo for example.
