When i built my sig rig (Main in signiture) back in november/december ish. is right around the time that HDD prices went WAYY upp.. Since i had $1150 to work with then i found it to be a better choice to get an SSD then an HDD.

well since the ONLY storage i have is my 128GB Crucial M4. I'm thinking of parting ways with it so i can grab a 60-64GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.

I have a guy offering me a couple 1TB hdd's (i can always keep and and sell the other)

If i do this. What would be a fast and reliable 60-64GB boot SSD for under $80..

I can't see your sign since I'm on my phone but pretty much any SSD will work well for Intel SRT duty. That's what I would do anyway. :cheers:

Why not keep the boot SSD, then use the 64GB to cache the 1TB HDD with Intel SRT (within Intel RST)?

RST sucks imo.

I'll just sell my 128gb m4 and get a 64gb boot drive + a 1TB hdd.

But which SSD to get?

My phone can too but I have to toggle mobile and desktop view. The mobile view is more friendly.

I would suggest you try out srt. Ask Waco how he feels going from raid 0 vertex 3s to srt.
It is actually quite a good feature hell if you could do what capitain suggests and go srt and 1tb plus the 128gb SSD boot drive.
