Intel is the better option out of those three SSD but it is out of stock. If you are willing to pay a little more for better performance the OCZ Agility 2 50GB SSD is a nice step up.. IMO

if the 40 gig wasnt enough but im already almost at my budget on this pc as it is if i dont need more then the 40 gig to have a real fast boot time for windows and can throw chrome on that thats great

40GB will be enough for your OS & Chrome/Firefox... Etc. It won't give you much room for many apps. I have the Intel X25-M G2 80GB and I love it!! You won't be sorry going with it. :)  It has enough room for Apps and a few games with room to spare.
