ill be using this for mostly gaming and programs so i want something quick but able to hold all my software!

Velociraptor is nice, but a good SSD beats it by far.
Keep shopping for about a month until gthe Gen3 SSD's arrive with improved performance and lower cost per gb.

If you must buy now, get a sandforce based ssd or, perhaps Intel.
