Hey I'm a gamer and make gaming videos. I am going to purchase an SSD drive to use as an external drive (With no OS) specifically for Fraps. Fraps records gameplay in very high quality (Full Size) and writes HUGE files, I have calculated for the games i play in very high quality i need to pull off atleast 180 write.

I have a SATA 2 Motherboard.

Which SSD would be the best for my SATA 2 Motherboard to acheive the highest READ/WRITE possible?

OCZ Vertex 2, 3 or 4? which would be the best to go for.

The reason I want an SSD for fraps is to cancel all recording lag which i seem to get with my current 7200 rpm when recording on full size in maximum quality in game. Its definatley a HDD bottleneck causing the lag.
