Cheapest 240gb or 250gb ssd with dram cache

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im looking for a ssd, possibly wishful thinking, possibly going to do it, but what is the least expensive ssd around 250gb that has dram cache? Nothing important will be held on it, so it doesnt have to be high quality, but faster than a 5400rpm hdd. Also, as a side question, is $28 usd for a 2x2gb kit of ddr2 667mhz sodimm a reasonable price?


I am still TechWizardThatNeedsHelp, just less of a mouthfull.

  • MSI B450i GAMING PLUS AC
  • XPG ADATA 2800Mhz
  • RX480 untill I have more for a 2060 or 2070
  • 2tb Sabrent Rocket Q PCIE gen 3 NVME SSD
  • Samsung 470 128GB SATA SSD

The TCSunbow X3 250GB looks to be a couple bucks cheaper than the A400, and it does have a DRAM cache (how large said cache is however is pretty much unknown, but I guess it's better than nothing):
