Get the 840 Evo. You can save some money here.

Note that even though it's an ebay listing you are buying from a name brand retailer's ebay storefront. Adoramacamera is the seller and I have bought from them before. You can tell by their ebay user rating how good they are.

I just ordered the 500GB version yesterday.

Oops sorry I linked you to a sold out deal. Here it is for $120 though still in stock.

$260 for the 500GB version.

I paid $260 for my old 120GB OCZ Vertex 2 when I bought it 3 years ago.

Here is a very good review of the Evo if you are interested.

Off the 2 you mentioned, Samsung is way better than the Seagate 600. Better read/write, better IOPs, and even cheaper. Nothing more that you can ask for.

But practically thinking, are your 2 games that heavy to use 24gb? If not, go for 120GB versions. Should be sufficient.

Cheers!!
