Default What should I buy?

Hey guys, I am in need of some MORE computer parts.

I need a 180 GB SSD which will last me for about $180 - $200

I also need a better cooler for my core i5 3770k which I will be willing to spend $60 - $ 80 on.

Thanks for reading.

I just bought a samsung 256gb for $169. If I were you I would go for one of those. Everything I have read and seen on these forums and elsewhere they are great.

As for a cooler you will have to wait on someone else I am also trying to figure that out. I am currently thinking about the Corsair H80, but that is more than your budget, but if you save on the SSD you could spend it on a cooler.

He lives in Australia so pricing is going to be different.

For the SSD you got a couple of options.
Umart Online

Umart Online

I would personally go for the 240GB for the price.

As for cooler. Why do you need one? Plan to OC?
