Get yo' speed on. HyperX. $179.99. NewEgg Canada.
An SSD means speed. You get it so stuff runs faster and it certainly works. Pop it in your computer and load your OS on it and you cut boot times down by a huge margin. Been playing a certain game a lot lately? Load it on the SSD and your load times are cut down. It's also great if you manipulate big files like video or images.
And if you're going to go with a flash memory based method of storage, you can't do much better than Kingston. Kingston has been one of the leading names in RAM and other forms of flash memory for a long time and they're continuing that reputation with their SSDs.
I work with a guy who has had some big problems with another brand SSD and when he saw this he decided to pick it up (assuming out bonus comes in) and finally put an end to the ridiculous issues he has been having with the other brand.
It was $239.99 but you're saving $60 so you get it for $179.99. You can also choose 120GB and 480GB which are on sale as well. Shipping is $6.99.
