Maximum PC - - BASICS BUILD GUIDE -

What would any mod­ern sys­tem be without a solid, quick, and de­pend­able hard drive be­hind its OS? Noth­ing, that’s what. Sure, those old spin­ning plat­ters may be far cheaper than their flash-based ri­vals, but noth­ing com­pares to hav­ing the in­stan­ta­neous re­sponse of an SSD. It’s one of the big­gest leaps you can make as a PC en­thu­si­ast, swap­ping from a hard drive to an SSD, and we cer­tainly wouldn’t build a sys­tem nowa­days without one. Whether it’s 2.5-inch or M.2, there’s an SSD for ev­ery­one, at any bud­get.

Be­cause we’re on a tight bud­get, we’ve gone for a 120GB model for our build. It’s not the flashiest of drives, but it does pack im­pres­sive 500MB/s read and 450MB/s write speeds into its in­cred­i­bly af­ford­able frame.
