The 850 evo is pretty much better in every regard, but will cost more...

Well the only ssds that beat the samsung 850s in performance almost all are pcie based and much more expensive.

I can defintely recomend the 850 evos. There is also the 850 pro of course, but it costs a lot more and performs nearly identical. It's theoretically more reliable but both are reliable enough to make that irrelevant cost wise.

I would be floored if you noticed the difference between those two drives without a benchmark... get whatever is cheaper as they are both solid drives. You can figure out price /GB by doing the math at the place you are going to get it from.

Here is a review comparing them from OCF: http://www.overclockers.com/kingston-hyperx-savage-240gb-ssd-review/

EDIT: Why was this not asked in your already existing build thread??? Its best to keep related/same items in one thread so you have all the info at your finger tips and duplicitive advice from the volunteers that help is not handed out across multiple threads. :)
