Um no, not really. Its more like "Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR" vs "Ferrari". The HyperX is the best Kingston makes and is a very good SSD. Up until the release of the 520 it was one of the few that I used in my own personal rigs.

NOW....if the Op had said "Intel 520 vs Kingston SSDnow V100"....that would be acura vs Ferrari :)~

My System Specs


Hehe thanks for the clarification, I knew the Kingston was good but not I didn't knew that much. I actually stared at my screen showing "Ferrari vs " for a while and wasn't able to choose lolll.

I have a 120Gb 510 right now in my rig but I need more space. I will soon buy a 180Gb 520, clone the 510 on it using the Intel app and use my 510 as supplementary space for games I use rarely (like Crysis 2 that I only keep to show off my rig and to test DX11 ).

I guess that would be a good setup?
