Question

Which SSD should I buy?

Hi All!

I bought a homebuild pc about 4 years ago and now it is time to switch out my hdd for an ssd. I know how to use but not how to built a pc, so I have to rely on google and youtube, which I am fully up for. The only trouble I am having is to figure out, which ssd to buy. I have found out that I wan't one with about 500 GB space (or even 1 TB, if it dosn't go over 140,- USD).

I mainly use my pc for work (office ect.) and playing games.

Here is some info about my pc:

Win 10, 64bit
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500 CPU @ 3.30 GHz
8 GB ram
(I dont know how to find out, what kind of hdd I'm using right now, but I found this)
HUA72101 0KLA330 44X SCSI Disk Device

If you need anything else, please let me know!
I appreciate any help I can get Happy

A 1TB SSD can be had for that price.

A Couple Of Good Choices

I can recommend both of the following SSDs as being compatible with your computer, having excellent performance and reliability, being within your budget, and including a 5-year warranty:
Crucial MX500:

WD Blue 3D:

There are one or two models from Samsung and Intel that measure faster on paper, but they are definitely not faster in actual use and they usually cost about 20%-30% more.
