Which SSD to go with?

Hey guys,

I'm looking to upgrade from my 640gig WD Cav Black to an SSD. My goal is to use the Cav Black as storage and the SSD as an OS drive and Photoshop. I have an Asus P6TSE SATA II, i7-920 running Win 7 Pro x64.

Right now I'm trying to decide what to go with. Looking for feedback on which one to choose.

More about which with
  1. I would go with the Intel 320 Series SSD. It is the more reliable drive of the three and since you are running a SATA II drive, I don't see a reason to run a SATA III SSD.... IMO
  2. ^5 +1 what tecmo and Gene said. The Intel 320 is rock solid and comes with a 5 year warranty.
  3. Great. Thanks for the advice guys. Appreciate it.
  4. Your motherboard is Sata II, so get the Sata II drive (Intel)

    However, you will get a better price per gb in the product below:

  5. Something to keep in mind.
    I just went with a sata 3 ssd as I will be upgrading at some point.
    PC's = upgrades. Not a complaint but reality and fun too.
