Perhaps if the 240GB one weren't 200 dollars, I'd get one, but since I have a grand total of zero dollars to spend...well.

I have a plethora of SSDs now. Funny thing is that I do not see a lot of difference when using them. My 840 Pro seemed to speed things up a bit but not so much that I would have noticed if someone have just secretly swapped them out. This is good, right? Entry level drives are now good enough, like regular hard drives vs the raptors back in the day.

Perhaps, but not big enough.

i need 750gig minimum to make it worth messing with.

I boot my machine once every couple days, i want my games faster....

You could, you know, install MUTLIPLE of these to allow you to keep your 750 gigs of constantly used games all on SSD... Of course, if you're constantly loading 750gig of games, you have a LOT more games you play regularly than I do.

i dont even have a tiny fraction of my games installed at any given time, as im currenty using a 600gig Velociraptor.

i Have over 150 steam games, a dozen origin games, a couple gog, plus another 50 or so on disk.

I want the new Samsung 840 EVO 1TB to come down another $200, and then ill be all over that like a fat kid on a cupcake...

I've started backing up my Steam and Origin game folders to mechanical drives, so that I don't have to re-download if I uninstall them from my SSD. I mean, Shogun 2 is like 30GB with all the DLC.

i should prorobly do that to my 2tb data drive, but once i finish a game, i rarely revisit it.
