Unless you have a boatload of money then you would use the SSD for your boot/OS drive and a conventional hdd for everything else.

Corsair Force Series GT CSSD-F120GBGT-BK 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) $199.99 and free shipping

Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $149.99

The Corsair SSD has high read/write speeds and at 120gb is great for the boot/OS drive and the Wester Digital will work for everything else unless you want to go to 1tb on the second drive.

The 2nd drive is not a problem I already have a 1TB HDD but I decided to make myself a christmas present and get a SSD for os and a few games ;)

I think newegg.com only ships to Canada and USA. Look for some local shops or online stores.

Im unfamiliar with Europes online stores. However, one of the best places is mwave, a store similar to newegg. Mwave's online store doesnt ship to Europe I think, but they have a store at ebay that does. Search ebay.com for "mwave" or "techtreasure" Its the same store, and they are the best store at ebay with worldwide shippping!

scan.co.uk.
cclonline.com
overclockers.co.uk

cclonline is cheaper than the others i think! I got my Razer Imperator from them.

Amazon/Ebay are more or less spread over the world and are a mix of everything! I just mentioned some pure PC stores!

I'm thinking between Corsair Force Series GT and OZC vertex 3... Which would you suggest? The price is about the same.

OZC vertex 3, since they have a firmware fix for the SSD .
