Best SSD for Gaming.

Recommended Posts

Folks! I am a gaming geek. I have been playing games for a long time. I have been trying to install Counter-Strike Global Offensive on my PC but the configuration of my PC is not sufficient to support that game that might be due to the built-in graphics card which is very low. I have been searching for the best SSD for Gaming that can support Counter Strike GO on my PC. I have come across the list of SSD for gaming, but I am not sure which one should I opt out. 
Here are the two SSD cards that I think would be the most suitable for me.
Samsung 960 Pro
MyDigitalSSD 120GB

I’m running this game with no lag on a computer from 2009..but I did recently upgrade to a nvidia950 and a 1tb Samsung ssd. And the gaming did improve slightly I mean this game has like 0 requirements the only thing that really matters is good internet

I left sandisk out of the list by mistake, but they are worse about failures than mushkin.

Please don't ever touch a computer I may ever use in the future.

 

 

A SSD from a HDD is the single biggest performance upgrade you can do on a computer. I haven't booted a PC i've owned off spinning media in 8 years.

Nothing beats 6 second boot times.

yup.

 

Bought my kiddo a new laptop for school, Had windows 10, a core i3, 8 GB memory and a 1TB HDD.  After setup and debloating, boot time as about 55 seconds. Swapped it out with a OCZ SSD,  Fresh w10 install with all stock drivers, 21 second boot. 

Boot time isn't all that matters, and actually not that big to me, it's the day-in-day-out usability and responsiveness that makes a SSD worth it.

I never wanted a Hifonics, still never want one... LOL

I have a buddies Hifonics 4 channel just laying in a corner of my garage someplace hidden from all eyes.. LOL
I used it 1 time just messing around and the thing would randomly turn off for no reason you smack it with your hand and it turn back on, brand new iirc too.

      So I got a promotion today, had been expecting it for a while. And for the past few years, I had told myself once I got a decent job, I would finally get a gaming rig. So now is the time to start planning this bitch out. I can build it all myself no problem, I am a service technician anyways. My only thing is, I am not super up to date with what the latest and greatest is. I recently checked out the newest addition to Intel, haswell technology. Looks nice, and I will take part. This topic is really for opinions on what would be best for what I am desired in doing. And to help with deciding what companies are better in what areas, like RAM, HDD, and what not. Also to take a look into how I will integrate my surround sound I want to custom build. I plan on getting 4 bookshelf speakers, center channel, and either a powered sub or build a enclosure for one. Will more than likely do the latter. Along with that I will have a stereo to power it all, that's where my main question comes in. Is that the best set up for a surround sound? Or am I better off getting a high end sound card with 5.1 built in? My second question starts with my monitors, I am going to do a triple monitor set up, and down the line will be running 4 displays. A TV for movies and such. While running the triple for daily use and heavy gaming. What monitors are good to look at, I remember in a old topic I had made someone mentioned getting monitors with IPS paneling. Is that still the best or is there something new out now? Along with that being said, I know I will need to run dual GFX cards, but will only have 1 in the very beginning due to this costing a bunch. What would be an ideal set up do you guys think? I would like to run around 16GB of ram, possibly more in the future. And as far as storage, I would like a decent sized SSD for my main and HDD for storage. Any and all help is appreciated. After posting this I am going to go and look around and start piecing this all together.

      I came up with this parts list with the help of some people elsewhere.

      I just recently finished my room the way I wanted it done. It consists of a Logitech Z906 5.1 Digital Home Theater System, Samsung 720p HDTV 32", Playstation 3 and controller chargers. I also built a new desk to house my new computer.
      Even though I don't have a HD box for cable my TV apparently gets them, And certain channels are encoded in either DTS or DD, Enabling me to get one of the formats for surround sound. As the Z906 decodes both DTS and DD.
      I have each of the rear speakers in each of the rear corners of the room behind me, and the front three speakers at the computer monitor. With the middle one mounted in back of the computer monitor.
      Here are some pictures.

      Hey guys,
      I thought it would be nice to see what everybody's game spot looks like.
      Just take a few pictures of your set-up like game pc, TV with xbox 360 and/or ps3 or whatever you have got.
      I'll start off showing you guys my game spot(s)
      First the basement






      Turtle Beach PX5 headset
      That beamer does a full HD
      I know it's kinda messy how al the hardware is set up but that's going to change I'm going to build something nice for that.
      Then there is still my spot in my own room



      PS3 and HD-PVR connected to tv.
      And last my portable game spot.
