Windows 7: Building my PC

I have both Pro 256GB and a EVO 240GB and I don't really see any difference in performance at all. The sequential read/write isn't important but the 4K read/write, which the OS benefits from. Both are about equal in that respect.

The Pro series is best but the Evo gives you the best bang for the buck. For a boot drive, I would (and did) get a Pro.

I would tend to go with that because the price difference isn't that great given the high end nature of the PC you're building.

Have you decided on a storage drive yet? You don't want to use the SSD for that.

The WD black series is expensive but very good. I've been buying Seagate Barracuda's lately against the trend and have to say batting 1000 so far, great value. Then you have Hitachi and Toshiba both of which I have and they slot between in price and value. I just got a 3tb Seagate with 64gb cache and 7200 rpm for 113.00 delivered.

+1 for the WD Black series, even if only for the five year warranty they have. I will use only Blacks in my computer. I do use WD Greens for making backups on but I wouldn't recommend them for continuous use.

A popular HDD is the 1TB WD Blue WD10EZEX. It's one of the faster, if not fastest, 7200rpm HDDs but it has a shorter warranty. The newest WD Blacks can give that Blue a good run for the money, though.

My biggest issue with Seagates is their poor customer service. WD warranty claims are handled pretty much painlessly but Seagate's are anything but. Recent reviews I've seen state that Seagate will replace even DOAs with a refurb that has only a 90 day warranty. Seagates may cost less but the shorter original warranty and poor customer service pretty much negates the advantage of lower price.
