Hey all, been out of the tech loop for a while, now that its upgrade time I figured someone here would know exactly what I'm in need of.
I've actually pretty much finished my upgrades (R9 290 on the way), and the last thing I can think of is an mSATA boot drive.
I currently have an Intel 180GB SSD which has Windows and a handful of games on it (~64GB free) and a 1TB 7200RPM storage drive (~400+GB free).
I like the idea of having an essentially on-board bootdrive and freeing up my SSD for Steam and MMO games I have.
I started hunting around Newegg but got worried about reviews on heat and connection issues.
Preferably looking for a 60-120GB drive (sub $100), from a reliable company, that will fit into my motherboard (link below), and won't burst into flames.
Bring on the suggestions!
