Hi,
I’m thinking about getting a Solid state HD as my 1st primary Sata II HD for installing WinXP Pro (And possibly Win Vista Ultra in the future)

This specific one caught my attention:
OCZ SSD 60GB (Sata II Core Series V2)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Its specs are superior to even the fastest 7200 – 10000RPM magnetic HD!
Sequential Access - Read Up to 170 MB/s
Sequential Access - Write Up to 98 MB/s

So, is it worth the money and will it work flawlessly / faster for installing and booting WinXP Pro?

Thanks in advance

No, not even close to a good HD's performance.

Unless you want to spend the $600+ on a good SSD, the fastest drive available for your machine right now is the Velociraptor.
