You may wonder why I'm in particular the guy on this forum that always not recommending SSD when building a rig will even talk about SSDs? well it simple, because as many times as I've said before price/performance ratio; You can have i7 with GTX780ti and your 7200rpm 64Mb will do the trick, if you want more you can always get a 10k rpm which cost a bit more, but nothing as more as you'd spent on SSD.
You can get Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III for about 160$ and 500Gb for 320$
Now with that amount of money you can get WD Black 4 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA III, 64 MB Cache for 250$ - more space than you'll ever need.
Now some may say 250Gb will suit them well, I've been worried with 500Gb last time I had such a small HDD, I currently own 1TB for over 6 years and not worried at all; now to get the same HDD space in SSD I'd pay 545$ which is unacceptable for me where I can pay only 60$ for that space.
Anyway after reading my opinion, as you know the fastest SSD I sure know is SATA3 with 550Mb of read and write.
May I introduce you to the next generation of SSDs: (I do hope your next builds will have extra PCIe slot)
- OCZ Z-Drive R4 series:
- Up to 2,800MB/s Sequential Read/Write
Now this IS a BEAST!!! finally a good news for faster computers, lower SSD prices and a better price/performance ratio.
What do you think?
PS you can get it on 1.2Tb version - will cost you like 2X 4k 65' TVs =)
