Hi, So I've decided to see what all the fuss is about and I'd like to get a cheap 60Gb SSD just for my boot drive (OS)

I've got a few bucks lying around so I've narrowed it down to a few choices:

Adata S510
Corsair Force3 Series
OCZ Agility 3 Series
OCZ Petrol Series
Intel SSDSC2CT060A3K5
Kingston SVP200S3
Corsair Accelerator Series
Adata S596Turbo

The store I'll be buying from doesn't stock much else (I hear tell of crucial m4's and other dark materials) and I live in South Africa so newegg etc. is unfortunately out of my reach :p 

I'm not looking for the latest and greatest but something *stable* (I do audio *work*) would be nice with a lil extra performance as opposed to my mech HDD's. I'm doing this purely coz I'm intrigued :) 

Thankss

Ok so I'm leaning towards the OCZ as it's the same price, just one moarR thing. Asynchronous vs Synchronous - I know that the asynchronous gets slightly slower as you add more data to it, but does it really make that much of a deathly difference? If it slows down to near normal HDD speeds then I'd be sad-ish. But if it's still relatively fast compared to HDD's then I'd still be happy as I'm thinking of filling it to around 60-70% capacity on average

Thanks :)
