Help with deciding what to ssd to buy

Infirms
  • 43 months ago

I'm in the market to switch from my current WD 1tb hdd to a ssd as my main boot drive with win 10 and some small programs such as chrome OBS steam etc also. I would like to move my current data to the ssd without much of a hassle my budet is roughly 100-150 with Taxes if the price is lower that would be better but That's how much my budget is I'm going with roughly 250 go ssd sounds about right in terms of space since I have a standard 1tb hdd for storage and a external 1tb hdd as well

My fist pick was the crucial mx300 shown here

The other is obvious Samsung 850 evo 250gb the price is a 10 dollar difference right now any other suggestions would help

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Y3yxFT/intel-internal-hard-drive-ssdsc2kw480h6x1 that is about 500gb and quite new, also it's at a very nice price point

You could get a Samsung SM951 for less.

except that'd be a 128gb version, in addition NVMe drives have a longer boot time due to pci-e initialization
