Update 2012-07-11: I went with and ordered a Samsung 830 Series 256 GB and a Samsung 830 Series 128 GB, but feel free to discuss. (Plextor M3 and M3 Pro especially is more expensive than the 830 or m4 here btw.)
I would appreciate some advice on which SSD to choose for my new build. Since I'd rather avoid headaches and Intel is much more expensive, the decisions seems to come down to either the Crucial m4 256 GB or the Samsung 830 Series 256 GB. Both can be had at the same price.
I don't really have any brand preferences, just want something solid that still performs well (at a reasonable price). It's for "normal" all-round home and office usage (no rendering, video editing, or encoding though), just want plenty of space for games, I guess.
I'm considering getting a ~128 GB SSD as well (for another PC), what would be recommended at that capacity? 128 GB may actually be enough for my new main rig as well (I'll probably get a 7200 RPM as well), but I'm worried I may regret being a cheapskate once it does run out and I have to put my games on the HDD.
Future system specs:
Bought: cpu: Intel Core i5 3570k | gfx: Palit GeForce GTX 670 2GB
Planned: mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 | ram: Crucial BallistiX Sport 2x8GB DDR3 1600MHz | ssd: Crucial m4 or Samsung 830 256GB
Probably: Seagate Barracuda 3TB (64MB / 7200RPM)
Reuse: psu: Zalman ZM850-HP | psu: Corsair TX750W | 5x HDD | Creative X-Fi Elite Pro (PCI) | Intel NIC (PCIe)
edit: Added poll.
