Hello all,
I'm planning on getting one of these things:

WDC 750GB SATA3 64MB - Green Power - WD7500AADX ($84)
Transcend 256GB SSD 2.5" SATA 3 ==> MLC ($300)
Corsair 240GB CSSD-F240GBGT-BK Force GT Series SATA III ($280)
Crucial 256Gb SSD ($280)

Capacity isn't a factor, since on my current 500 GB drive, I'm barely using 100 GB of storage space. So I think 240/256 GB SSD storage is more than enough for me. (256 is preferable of course) but cost IS a factor. I'm going to use it for MMORPGs like Guild Wars 2 in the future, and some other single player games. Which one is the best value for money. I don't mind spending $300 on SSD as long as it is a valuable investment and work really well and worth the extra $220.

So, is it really worth the extra ridiculous amount of money? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks :)
