I have narrowed my options to the following SSD's. I want to install Win 7 64-bit and a few other applications. I will use my 1TB WD Caviar for media and storage. I have games but I don't play them very often. This is my first SSD.
1. Intel X25 V 40GB
2. OCZ Vertex Series 30GB
3. OCZ Agility 30GB
I have the Kingston version. I have 25g used, and I leave it that way. Use it for read only , so write speed spec is not a factor. Theres a vbs program that can time your shutdown-(including bios)reboot time-working windows desktop, mine is 36 seconds. Its impressively fast !
