Looking for help with buying SSD

Posted 17th Dec 2019
Hi, I’m looking for suggestions on buying a SSD for my PC, My budget is around £50 max, I’ve noticed the Kingston A400 is a decent price but I’ve seen mixed reviews and I’m not sure whether it’s worth it, I’m looking at the 500GB for £42, I basically just want something reliable and fast, I currently use HDD so if I bought an SSD I would obviously want it as my boot drive but also use it as the drive I play games from.
Any suggestions/opinions would be appreciated, Thanks

Team 5 Lite 3D, ADATA SU800. Whichever is cheaper
TCsunbow 1TB drop to £60 often
SSD will make it boot faster for sure, but after that, you might not notice much.
Moving files around will be a bit faster, but since a game will be loaded into ram, it's already much faster.
Are you having any particular problems, could a bigger CPU cooler be better (stopping thermal throttling)
I bought the Lexar NS100 2.5” SATA III 480GB for £36.99 on Amazon following a recommendation on here last week, seems to do the trick

I’m not really having problems it’s just I feel like my load times are a little slow so I was just looking to upgrade from my HDD
