I have an older (not that old) system that I wouldn't mind setting up as a Windows rig, for those games that do not work on Linux (Debian Wheezy)

 

Here's what I have for this system:

 

ASUS P8 H67-M Pro

Intel i3 2100

Stock Intel Heatsink (don't really need anything more)

4-8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 (remember the board had a problem with all slots filled, I'll test that)

AMD HD5770 1GB

Seasonic SS-500GM (not 100% modular)

Antec P182 case (I know, old, right? :p )

 

So, I was thinking, why not put a SSD in here? Should I get like a Crucial M4? I won't need much space, as I will save game data on a seperate HDD. I'd be happy with 64GB. I'll be putting Windows 7 on it.

 

I want the lowest price for this thing. Keep around $100, please. Newegg is my preferred site, but Id buy from anyone in the USA.

I'd recommend the Samsung 840 120 GB for $109. If you want to step it up by $30, you could get the 840 Pro.

I do have this in this system currently, an 830: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820147163

 

I was considering that as well..
