Default Help decide between these SSDs please

Hey guys,

I just finished my new build and this is the only thing I'm having hard times deciding.
I narrowed any potential SSDs to the following 4:

Sandisk Extreme,
Corsair Force GT ,
Corsair Neutron GTX,
Samsung 840 PRO

My question is are the GTX and Samsung really worth the extra cash considering I intend on installing them in a heavy-gaming PC?

Thanks!

My reply : GTX will be super fast
GT slower but cheaper.Don't know for the others.

The GT is fast for moving compressed data and the GTX for response in general,faster.

I'd honestly just buy whatever is the cheapest.

Intel 520 if you haven't considered it, I find this SSD from experience to be the most reliable out of all the bunch.

The 840 pro and gtx are the best performers. The scandisk is probably the cheapest, but its still a decent drive. I would probably investigate warranty for each drive. You don't want to shell out money for a new top of the line drive and not have good coverage should it fail.

edit: you definitely cannot go wrong with an intel drive. They have good waranty service in my experience.
