Is it worth getting an SSD, if so which one should I get?

Yoo Song Won

I'm considering buying an SSD but have no idea on which one I should buy... I want it to be pretty budget and not too overpriced....

850 Evo is bae. 250GB (Good option for boot drive and some other programs e.g. Photoshop as well as some games) 500GB for a larger area to store games that you want to be opening quicker.

 AData SP 550. It's not quite as fast as an 850 Evo, but it has an unbeatable price and is still a really good option.

Edit: 240GB model is going for $62 on Amazon right now http://www.amazon.com/dp/B013J7Q338/?tag=pcpapi-20

I've built 3 PC's, but none for myself... In fact, I'm using an iMac that my dad bought for me as my desktop. Awkward...

Please don't say "SSD drive." By doing so, you are literally saying "Solid State Drive Drive" and causing my brain cells to commit suicide. The same applies to HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express).

just got a ADATA Premier Pro SP550 120GB and put some games on it; have no intention of wasting it putting the OS on it - I don't reboot the PC that often

the price / GB is still high, bought at the same time and for a similar price a 1TB HDD (for a DVR)

 

was it worth it?! I'd say not really

will it be worth it for replacing a HDD inside a laptop? probably yes

I'd recommend the Samsung 850 Evo, as that is my second drive from Samsung, swapped out the 120 GB 840 Evo I had in my desktop rig, nothing wrong with it, I just upgraded to 250 GB instead. I would recommend the 250-500 GB solutions, The 120 GB fills up pretty quick and you won't get the good speeds that they show you in tests unless you've got atleast 250 GB, or so Linus himself will have us believe, but I think I read an article on AnanTech about it too.
