Best SSD boot drive/cache drive?

So basically Im upgrading my pc because I've sold my pc thats in the description. I want to go for load speeds, what'd be better, devote a single SSD to caching, or a single SSD boot drive (windows+program files+Skyrim+whatever I'm playing at the time)?

Problem 1:

Basically Im going to go for an 8320 (money issues), so I know I can't use intel caching, is there any other caching software (if so whats the best one)?

  1. I would always suggest just looking at a 120GB SSD for a boot drive instead of caching, AMD does not have a low level caching solution, a software solution would not do the job.
  2. Shame, what SSD do you recommend? I don't want to spend too much money.

    There you go, damn fast SSD too. LOL amazing price.
  4. I can get this for £40 ~$62. Is that any good?

    You do not want to get the Vertex 2, its a pretty old unit and uses older, less reliable NAND flash storage.

    This is the lowest price you can get away with :

    Or you can go 3$ cheaper for a little older drive, but not worth it in my opinion.

    I have used an SSD before, a 840 pro (256gb), but I never got round to using it, as with much of the stuff in my old computer. I was having a problem transferring my stuff from my HDD to my SSD, hopefully this time I won't have problems.
