Hello. Looking to get a SSD to load win 7 on and my favorite game or two; with a Western Digital Caviar Black HD for storage.
Found these so far that seem cheaper/decent reviews:

$124.99 - OCZ Vertex Series OCZSSD2-1VTX60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

$124.99 - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
(some ppl on newegg reviews, saying that vertex 2 is slower than advertised?)

$134.99 - Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC064MAG-1G1 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
(SATA III, claimed faster read times, ect).

Basically, is there anything around my price range in 40-64GB SSD that's reliable and fast?
How do these compare?

Intel X25-V 40GB - $94.99 @ MicroCenter

Rebadged ADATA S599 64GB - $99.99 @ Microcenter

I got 2 of the above, set up in RAID 0, and no problems (yet). Sandforce 1222 controller, reads/writes @ 280/270 (single drive specs). However, the only "problem" is that the drive is listed at 64GB, but Windows only reports less than 60GB, which is a know problem with Sandforce controllers.
