    Ok, so I already have a stock Apple SSD 128 GB. It's not cutting it for bootcamp as I'm already out of space. Now I am having a hard time deciding between drives. Here are 2 I have it narrowed down to -
    - This is a SSHD seagate 750GB

    - OCZ Agility 4 256GB

    My MBP has two Sata III (6GB/S) ports - one is the main bay, the other is the optical disk drive which I am replacing with the MEC Optibay. SMS is only supported in the original HD bay so if I got the seagate it would need to go there. Also, the SSD that apple gave me only runs SATA II speeds :mad: so that will be immediately going into the Optibay slot. But now if I got the OCZ I'm sacrificing space for speed, but would that be enough for gaming? (I have alot of steam games like Dead Space 1-2, MaxPayne3, CODMW3, The secret World, + more). Decisions decisions.. :confused:

    Nice. I think I might go with the seagate for now cause I have a lot of Steam games and need the storage. I feel even a 256 GB SSD wouldn't be enough as I would be using 100 + gigs worth of games. eventually ill upgrade the crappy ssd apple gave me to a sataIII 256GB.:D Thanks for the replies.
