Best Cheapest SSD?

tgxdirty

Im looking to get an SSD for my new pc to mainly be my boot drive as well as primary storage for the sims 3 to decrease the loading times of that massive game. Which one would you guys suggest? How many GBs do you think I would need? My budget for this part is anywhere from $50-$100

I got a 240GB Samsung evo for $81 thats fast, good storage, and its a highly recommended brand. I would get that. There are a lot of cheap SSDs out there made by brands i really dont trust.

+1. The 850 Evo is one that I recommend for every computer I build. It's amazingly inexpensive, fast and very reliable.
