My main thing is All the windows updates and such. Doing a full reinstall is a day long event almost.

Edit: also if there's no practical differences between quality SSDs the 840 may be something I skip for a crucial ssd.

The only difference I'm finding in these SSDs are long-term effects of write-wearing and performance. Samsung has consistently been good about keeping performance after having a ton of write cycles (http://www.anandtech.com/bench/SSD/730).

I've also found ways to shorten reinstalling Windows, mostly by keeping a system image somewhere after I've gotten it to a "good state". Takes about 20 minutes to get up and running again. And usually Windows Updates are done in huge chunks anyway. I guess the only problem is some of the programs in that state are stale, but thank goodness for Ninite.

windows has some things it won't get until a prior update is gotten sometimes.

Ok issues center up with my card so I was not able to buy the ssd I wanted then expenses now keep coming. I am wondering if a 120 might just be better for now to get this update rolling.
