    I'm looking to get my first SSD drive. I just bought a i5-4960 and a Gigabyte x97 gamer 7. I'm not looking to speed a lot, meaning in the $150-$200 range. I have zero experience with M.2 or SSD. Any recommendation is welcome. Thanks!

    If you want to install the OS on an M.2, there are only two drives. Samsung XP941 (OEM) and Plextor M6E. Any other M.2 drive will not be bootable at this time. M.2 is brand new and has weak support.
