Just got a ocz vertex 4 256 gig, and put in my #2 Ati rig in sig. Updated to 1.5 firmware using ocz tool on another computer boy was that easy. I'm coming from a crucial M3 and it's noticeably faster alright. Ther pretty cheap as of now 219.00 with free shipping. Also have a very good warranty 5 years.

I just purchased my first one. On a budget so had to buy the 128GB OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G.

I only have 38GB left on my HDD.

Looks like I'll be joining this club as I was doing some XMas shopping online and couldn't resist

I bought a 256GB Samsung 840 along with my GTX760 a while back but the 760 didn't agree at all with my old ass sandy bridge mobo and the SSD wasn't performing too hot either... was taking a good 2 minutes to get past the post and boot up. It would just hang on B2 for ever.

With my latest upgrade, back to top speeds

Going back to a mechanical drive for anything other than storage would be like going back to dial-up... although I do sometimes miss all that noise when dial-up was connecting
