I'm looking for an SSD for my build and I already have a 1 TB WD Blue hard drive. I've been told that 120 GB isn't enough for an SSD, so what 240 GB drive would be best while still having a relatively cheap price. I've been looking at the PNY ones but I really don't know what makes a good SSD

People just say that because you can't put a lot on it. It will definitely fit your OS and at least two games. But it depends on what your doing with the SSD. Are you only using it for the OS?

OS and then maybe a few games and programs

Okay. I'd get a 240GB to be safe. Something like this:

275GB and is very fast.

If I wanted to make things even cheaper, could I just get a 120 GB drive for OS and like one program or game or is 120 still too small for just that?
