Hi, I want to add SSD as a primary drive (OS and programs) to my HP Compaq 6200 Pro Microtower (and keep my HDD as secondary - for data storage). The specifics of my configuration are: i5-2400 processor, 16GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Win 10 OS (64-bit).
Can someone, please, help me with the most suitable SSD?
Product specifications state 80GB to 160GB SSD support - I want to add 120GB or 128GB SSD - are there any specifics I have look up for?
Thank you! I prefer the Intel brand as well and I think 120GB will fit my needs (the filled space will be 80GB, leaving about 40GB free on that drive - maybe 240GB will provide better ratio ocupied-free space, but I don't want to exceed the recomended by HP limit of 180GB drive) . The budget is no issue - quality and compatability are priorities for me.
Your information is very useful to me. I was just worried some specifications are important, but as I see your sugestions - SATA III is the only thing I have to look up for.
