Currently using a 120Gb OCZ Arc 100. I couldn't say anything about its performance all I know is my PC boots faster, games loads quicker and tranfer rates are much better.

But 120Gb sure is not enough. Looking forward upgrading to a higher capacity and found this

Colorful SL500 320Gb

It is priced at $73.00 I mean it's the cheapest I can find. Gonna make the 120Gb as drive for OS and the 320Gb for games.
Would like to hear your thoughts. Thanks !

Dependant on what OS you are presently running as to whether or not I would recommend doing the above, any build that I do now includes a 256GB SSD just for the OS, this allows for the many security updates that will be released in the coming years + upgrading when the next version of Windows comes along.

Wow that's a steal price from Adata. But I had a 256Gb SX900 from them before and its now a paperweight since it broke down just 5 months after use.

I am using Windows 10 and nothing else was installed in my C: and the 120Gb I have has 60Gb free space left so yes I would consider getting a larger capacity. Thank you.
