It would indeed.

The thing is, after the experience I had with my OCZ where it crashed several of time.. eh.

If you guys would choose a nice SSD to a fairly good price, what would it be?

Looks fairly interesting.

Here it is guys, Corsair Force 3 120GB

Would it limit its lifetime if I run all the games on it? Like everything, software and stuff like that. I really want to get rid of my current HDD.

I'm running an Intel 320 series SSD in my work laptop and it's been solid for me. No concerns whatsoever.

I recently bought 2 Crucial M4's 64GB for $109 ea. or the 128GB's go for around $204.00. I'm quite pleased with the purchase.

Hey Steve!

But again, do you think it will lower the lifetime of the SSD, when running everything on it? (games, software etc.)

the life span of an SSD is almost unlimited in terms of the time you'll own it. theres no moving parts so nothing to wear.

its read cycles are like 4x that of a standard mechanical drive.

I run mine as my main HDD in my gaming rig, so far its only got windows, bf3 and red orchestra 2 on it. its goes like stink as well lol

I agree with Badger, I don't think it will affect it at all.
