I was hoping for some help. I have been piecing together a water cooled gaming rig as budget and time allow for almost a year now. Last April I grabbed the Crucial RealSSD C300[newegg.com] as the boot drive, thinking I'll use a seperate 1TB spinning platter drive for media storage, leaving the SSD for programs and OS.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when there was the FP deal for the OCZ Vertex 3[newegg.com], which I grabbed as well, thinking it could be bound for a laptop or something...
Well, I'm coming to wonder which is the better one for my hopefully soon to be completed gaming rig. Here's my breakdown so far.
I stopped right there. It seems the OCZ Vertex 3 is much better, it's just hard to swallow since the Crucial cost twice as much a year ago. I checked out TOm's hardware and found this roundup Ten 60 GB SandForce-Based Boot Drives, Rounded-Up[tomshardware.com] it mentions the OCZ but not the crucial model I have, just the new m4 series.
Any opinions? Not looking to buy yet a third SSD, trying to figure out which of these is better. Leaning heavily towards the OCZ Vertex 3..
There is already a Vertex 4 which is better than the Vertex 3; the bottom line is that pretty much any SSD is better than no SSD. The Crucial RealSSD C300 is still a bery nice drive and would make a nice upgrade over a mechanical HDD.
