    Right now im in possession of an m11x r3 and using it for day to day uses and looking to use it for video editing capture and the like, so im going to upgrade anything i can, the ram is pretty straightforward and i cant change the cpu all that is left is the HDD.

    Right now i have a 500gb 7200rpm i believe its hindered my system for video editing as it seems i need read/write speeds far greater than 50mb/s as im trying to capture in 1080p mostly, my drive is far from enough.


    Going by this alone i can tell this will be the minumum speeds ill need to be getting from the ssd i purchase,

    Ive heard of the intel 520, ocz vertex 3, crucial m4 and the samsung 830
    i assume these are the best

    so guys which ssd should i buy if those arent fast enough what is my best bet?

    All help and suggestions appreciated *price is not an issue atm

    Take a look at the dedicated SSD thread, but the 830 has been getting a lot of praise and that would be my choice

    My suggestion is to read the huge sticky post at the top of the forum that says "SSD Buying Guide" for starters, you're only asking a question that's been beaten to death.
