Hi guys, I'm finally jumping on the ssd bandwagon and ordering one today at some point. Just one problem, I cant decide between these two drives:

http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/4657434/art/ocz/solid-stat...


The first drive has faster a read/write of 280/275, but is considerably more expensive. Does a higher read/write speed make a big difference?
Is it worth the extra cash? Is quantity more important than quality when it comes to an SSD?

Let me confuse you more, I am looking at SSD as well but now I have stumbled across OCZ PCI-e SSD storage. Plugs into the PCI-e slot, no worries about SATA 2 or SATA 3 and the specs reads are triple that of the best SATA 2 SSDs on the market. Pricey but you are get super fast reads and writes.

So I wonder if its worth the look?

Read speeds are what SSDs are all about! The faster the reads, the faster and more respondsive the system will be.

After the OS is installed, only a few writes occur. Some, but not much.
