Momentus XT vs SSD


Apr 25, 2012
Hey gurus, my budget on storage is $150. The Seagate Momentus XT currently meets that at $150. I can get the Corsair Nova 64gb SSD for $60 a Western Digital 500gb HDD for $80. Total $140. Since the SSD-HDD setup is only 10 dollars cheaper then the Momentus, money isn't really an issue. I wil be moving my users folder to the HDD if I choose that setup. What do you guys think? Im new to building systems, and I like simplicity, but I like performance slightly more. Should I take the plunge and get SSD or stick with simpler, kinda slower Momentus XT? Tell me what you guys think.

Thanks, elramster
Combination SSD and HD is better than Momentus XT in the performance.

you can get the Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR60GB 2.5" 60GB for $68

and amsung by Seagate Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ for $70 after $10 off

or if you are near microcenter you can get Patriot Pyro PP60GS25SSDR 2.5" 60GB SATA III for $50 after MIR

or the new intel 330 SSDSC2CT060A3K5 2.5" 60GB for $65 after MIR

Corsair Nova only support SATA II.
