I bought a Crucial M4 128GB SSD 2 years ago to the day almost, that I have my OS and key programs on. 128GB seems to be the perfect size drive for my OS, so I don't need to upgrade to a larger capacity. I'm wondering if I should get a new SSD because mine is so old. Since this is the only SSD I've ever owned, I'm not sure if I'm missing out on something great by upgrading to a newer model. If I did get a new SSD for my OS it would be a 128GB Samsung 840 Pro. Is it something I should jump all over, or should I just be content with what I have?

PC build:
CPU: Intel i-5 3570K
GPU: 2 X Gigabyte GTX 660's in SLI
Mobo: Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H
PSU: Corsair 750-Watt
RAM: 16GB G. Skill Sniper Gaming Series 1600
Storage: Crucial M4 128GB SSD/WD 750GB HDD/2 X WD 500GB HDD

If you aren't using your SSD much other than loading programs on it, you can expect it to last well over 10 years. At least for that model.
