    Default Best SSD under 450$?

    Really need a 1tb or 960gb one, so samsung/Crucial/Sandisk/Mushkin Reactor have ones in that price range so are those good? or will saving up a bit more and getting the kingston one be worth it?

    The Samsung 850 EVO one is usually the most favored and it also seems to be faster than most (although by a little bit) and it's $380 on Newegg right now (US site since you asked for in dollars rather than BDT). Also they are also giving away 8 GB HyperX RAM for free with it. It's got 5 egg review on newegg with the most reviews so I think it's good.


    If you are planning to raise your budget by a little bit then get the Samsung 850 PRO 1 TB at $487.99 from Amazon as it is the fastest SATA SSD.

    Wow didn't know there's a 8gb ram for free as well, is that offer also valid with the 490$ one?

    Here is the link to the Samsung 850 EVO with the 8 GB RAM FREE offer at Newegg : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9SIA3FA2KW8135

    The 850 PRO has a higher price on Newegg ($540) but lower on Amazon ( $487.99 ) but neither mention about the 8 GB RAM so I don't think they are offering it. This might be (I'm not sure but I guess) a Newegg only offer, the 850 EVO on Amazon also doesn't say about the RAM offer.

    Hope this helped.

    Also he asked for a 960 GB or 1 TB drive but you recommended a 400 GB. Yes the Intel 750 series NVMe based SSD will be a LOT faster than a SATA based SSD but with a SATA SSD you can get more storage and get it cheaper which is what the buyer wants in this case. He wants 1 TB under $450.
    Also your answer for the local option was also only 512 GB and pretty expensive, as getting 2 of those (for 1 TB) will cost over Tk.50k whicle one can get a SAMSUNG 850 EVO 1 TB for 37k from Binary Logic. Link here : http://binarylogic.com.bd/samsung-85...d-state-drive/

    Please read the question properly first and search a bit more as then you'll find better and more affordable options.

    Thanks it did. and sorry but another question, i currently have G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) will the fury hyper X RAM work on it? or do i need to get the RAM from the same model? Im gonna contact them and see if i can get the ripjaws one and if it works out getting this one!

    Edit : Also since it's a lower priced model how long do you reckon SSD's like these will last? i should be able to get around 5 years from them right?

    Your system should be able to run the Hyper X RAM with the G.SKILL just fine (although it is recommended to have the same RAM, it is not necessary and doesn't usually affect your system). You should just check that the type of RAM is similar like the speed (which is 1600 for the Hyper X one).

    Also as SAMSUNG as a good reputation of their SSD, and that they make their controllers and NAND themselves expect to see good performance and a good lifetime. But the thing is that there is always some good units and bad units and a products lifetime depends on how lucky you are. It should be able to serve you a long time and as there are no moving parts like in a HDD there is obviously a lesser chance of failure.

    Update : Seems like the offer with the free HyperX Fury RAM ended unfortunately. I can't see it anymore on the Newegg page, if you were lucky enough to get it during the offer then congratulations, but if you haven't then now it's up to you to decide what to get now.

    Found a store that's still giving out the RAM, deciding wether to get that or the PRO one : http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-2-5-In.../dp/B00LF10KTE is this one better than the last one or just slightly different? contacted the store and they say they'll give the ram free with both. ty for all the info, i've never used an SSD on pc (just laptops) so i had very little knowledge of these.

    but for half the space?? and do you really need PCIe for gaming i thought it's more for professional workstations.


    The 850 PRO is better as it will ensure a longer lifetime and is also faster. Here the longer lifetime matters as you are paying a high price and you don't want up to 1 TB of data to lost just in case the drive fails, so you should get the PRO one. That doesn't mean that the 850 EVO is really bad or might fail too soon and that you should really invest more for a 850 PRO SSD, but given your PC specs and your budget for a storage drive I don't think you'll really hesitate to shell out just $38 more dollars over your budget.



    Also PCIe based SSD are definitely way faster than SATA and SSDs are really not that important for games, it just improves the load times mainly. But if you really need a lot of storage and don't want/need the most overkill specs then the Intel 750 series NVMe SSD is not really that much worth it for you. But then again WHO DOESN'T WANT IT

    I've went ahead and ordered the Pro 1tb one! ty for all the info and help man. and yeah the PCIe one is obviously going to be better but you knowww im not running a super high end build with an x99, 5th gen i7 and ddr4 ram (I WISH IT WAS TRUE) V.V so i think i'll just buy the pro and save up for a better gpu later on!

    You're very Welcome, I'm glad that I could help (especially given that I'm a newbie). And I hope you have a good experience with your new SSD.


    BTW just for the fact 5th Gen Broadwell i7 desktop CPU don't support DDR4 RAM. Skylake will though.

    Still glad to help.
    Really? my sis has a 5820k and x99 and her one works o.o oh well and thanks a lot for helping me pick!

    If you're saying about the DDR4 RAM thing then the 5820k is a Haswell-E processor which is 4th Gen, and it is on the LGA2011-3 socket so it can only run on X99 MoBo which support DDR4. 5th Gen Broadwell i7 5775C runs on LGA1150 socket (same as non E Haswell) and LGA1150 MoBo don't support DDR4, neither does the CPU so DDR4 RAM won't work with the i7 5775C. Once Skylake CPUs come out with LGA 1151 MoBo then DDR4 will be supported by all Skylake CPUs. But Broadwell and (non-E) Haswell don't support DDR4.

    The 5820K is among Intels Haswell-E or Extreme edition CPUs so they support DDR4 for X99. I hope this clarified.

    Ohh didn't know about that thought it was 5th gen.. since mine's 4th gen and her one was worth more. ty for clearing it up! and tbh so far ddr4 ram didn't seem to make her pc run any faster or anything do you think it'll get better with Dx12? she has a 980 and a better ram&cpu but i still get better fps on some titles(at the same settings)

    Well DX12 is mainly for optimizing the GPU and it will make a performance difference for Gaming. But RAM really doesn't mean much in terms of Gaming, DDR4 or DDR3 there is really not much of a difference if it's only for Gaming, even just 8 GB DDR3 compared to 16 GB will hardly make any difference, and switching to DDR4 just means the RAM speed will be faster by a bit, but hardly any difference in gaming performance. The only component that really makes differences in gaming is the GPU, even the CPU isn't that important in most games. You just need to make sure that the CPU doesn't bottleneck the GPU and having 4 cores is enough, a bit better if hyperthreaded. Any more for a setup dedicated to only Gaming is almost Overkill. DX12 will definitely help the GPU performance, but no difference for RAM or CPU.

    Faster and more RAM makes a real difference in more professional work scenarios like rendering, editing, compression etc.. This is where CPU performance and memory is very important because more data can take up the memory faster so the task can be done much faster which is important in workstations.


    TBH If I was you sister or had to build a GAMING PC with a similar budget then I'd actually go for less powerful CPU, and RAM and no X99 and opt for a better GPU like a Custom PCB 980 Ti.


    Hope I could clarify your confusions.
