Choices SSD or Game

I have been recently trying to talk my parents into an ssd and when i finally got them on board i kinda felt like i wanted something else. Its like you want what you cant have because it is forbidden. i was thinking of picking up an intel 520 180gb for its reliability and warranty and speed. But now that i can get, i kinda wanna get black ops 2 for xbox. and im kinda torn between the two. Any help or suggestion would be much obliged. and no trolling! i hate trolls.

Get your parents to get the SSD and then save up your milk money and get Black Ops. I'm pretty sure one of these items is more expensive than the other.

When I first read the thread title I thought I had misunderstood and needed to click in to clarify.

Butů I WAS RIGHT.

Worst thread ever. How can you even compare an SSD to a game? (not even going into the price difference).

Get a job.

Oh hey look... an SSD AND a game

If you’re in the market for an SSD to upgrade your gaming computer with, Samsung has a new offering that you may find interesting. Samsung is offering its 840 Pro solid-state drives in a special bundle that comes with a full digital copy of the new game Assassin’s Creed III. The SSD is available in three capacities.

I was very disappointed by Black Ops on Mac. I'd get the SSD and buy a better game for less.

Agree with pretty much everyone... get the SSD to make all your computer use go faster right now and wait for Black Ops to get discounted in 6 months.

Get the SSD and then do something to help you earn more money later in life.

I'm looking at learning Xcode personally, just because and shell scripting too.

All of this while studying for my Citrix cert.
