After all this time, we still recommend Crucial's MX500 1TB as the best SSD for gaming if you're on a budget, but there is a compelling deal right now for Adata's Ultimate SU800 of the same capacity. It can be had for just $90.09 over at Rakuten right now.
That's around $40 cheaper than Crucial's SSD, making it an easy recommendation for bulk SSD storage. To get that price, just enter coupon code AD15 or SAVE15 at checkout. Either one knocks 15 percent off the $105.99 sale price. They can't be stacked, unfortunately, but $90.09 for 1TB is a fantastic price.
