Stay FAR away from the standard Samsung 840. It uses TLC NAND...which is unproven and fragile. Dont be a guinea pig! Get a Sammy 840 PRO...its an excellent drive....or one of a number of other excellent drives out there (sandisk extreme, Intel 520, Crucial M4, Crucial M500, Corsair Force GS, etc etc etc). You don say where you are...so Sammsung RMA in canada can be a hassle...take that for what its worth too. ;)

The MPower is a good board. IMHO worth the money....but YMMV. Havent had great luck with GB's mobos the past two gens. So if not MSI....go Asus. :)
