Hello guys 😃 , A fellow PC user here. Today morning when i woke up, i was greeted with a surprise. My PC wont boot into windows saying the windows boot is corrupt. After 30 minutes of troubleshooting i came to the realization that my 8 year old snail 512 GB HDD had finally given up at trying to survive. So i decided, its finally time to give the old geezer a burial and say hello to a brand new Solid state drive. But i have a very limited knowledge about what SSD i should go for.
I am from India and on kind of a tight budget. I can spend around Rs3000 ($40) to get one. I shortlisted a few on amazon.in but the reviews of a few talking about drive failure kinda scared me. So here i am hoping someone could list up some good budget drives for me to buy. I am not looking for a 512GB SSD, a 240 gig one will be enough. Was looking at these before i thought its better to ask the pros.

You sure your PSU is incapable of powering all your parts in your system? I've seen how people on a budget have the worst of PSU's and that is what leads to a system not booting, a corrupt OS or a missing HDD during boot up.

Between those SSD's, I'd pick either the Seagate or the Kingston but please keep in mind that you can't add any partitions to an SSD apart from that which the OS will make, in order to retain life of the SSD.

I have a good PSU. Its a corsair cx450. I have an rx480 4gb and an i7 3770 cpu. I think the hard drive was just too old that it died. But thanks alot! I'll get one of the kingston/seagate ssds
