Best value 64GB SSD?

Hi.

I am looking to purchase my first SSD for my first build in 5 years. I have my eyes on a Crucial M4 64GB for 50.

Is there anything better for that price?

Cheers.

What do you use your PC for?

64gb is somewhat small already as you may painfully find, like me.
Programs like 3dsmax like to instal some files on Win drive. Had to upgrade my system ssd to 128 gb because of that.
Said that:

YOUR BASKET
1 x Samsung 120GB SSD 840 EVO SATA 6Gb/s Basic - (MZ-7TE120BW) 79.99
1 x SanDisk Pulse 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Hard Drive - (SDSSDP-128G-G25) 67.99
1 x Kingston 120GB SSDNow V300 Drive SATA 6Gb/s 3 2.5" (7mm height) Solid State Hard Drive - (SV300S37A/120G) 65.99
1 x Toshiba SSD HDTS212EZSTA 9.5mm 128GB Solid State Hard Drive - Retail 63.95
Total : 288.72 (includes shipping : 9.00).



To be honest I would spend the 30 extra and get Samsung Evo.

i5 6600k / Asus Z170M-Plus / Asus GTX 970 DCU II / G.Skill Ripjaws 2400Mhz 2x4 GB / Crucial BX100 250 GB / BeQuiet Power Zone 650w Modular

I would too. The 840 Evo is probably the best SSD one can buy for the price.

Cheers. It will be for light gaming, internet and maybe some DAW work.

Just seen the EVO on the jungle only 20 more for double the capacity over the M4.

Gonna pick the EVO 120GB up.

Cheers.
