Hey. I came across techgage through some useful reviews and I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask for purchase advice but here goes.
I'm looking to purchase an SSD as well as 1-2 HDDs for my system and wonder if someone could point me in the right direction. I specifically need an SSD with aggressive & effective garbage collection
since I want to be able to use it with an OS that doesn't support TRIM.
My usage primarily consists of:
A combination of old and new games.
Quite a lot of Video/Audio/Image Editing & Encoding.
: Quite limited, €250 would probably be my absolute maximum for the SSD. As for HDDs it's a bit up in the air.
Some googling has given me names such as the Kingston V100+ & V300+, SSDs with Intel G2, the latest Crucial M4 as well as the Corsair Neutron. But what would you recommend? Also, I'm interested/curious in knowing what companies have their own software for manual TRIM. (I know Intel is one of these with their Intel Toolbox)
Also, what kind of HDDs would you recommend in combination with the SSD for general storage? Your knowledge is very much appreciated
