I was wondering if I can run MSI Z77-G43 with two 60GB SSD (half of one for booting, rest for gaming) or one 120GB SSD. What about the ASRock Z68?

Also would these SSD be good?

Motherboards will support however many SSDs of whatever size you connect to them, there are no limitations on number or capacity.

SATA III SSDs will also work in SATA II ports, just at a lower maximum throughput. The lion's share of their performance, however, is in their extremely low latency, which is not impacted by the type of SATA port you use.

In short, knock yourself out, get whatever SSD setup you feel is best for you. Personally, I'd recommend a 120GB SSD with a larger mechanical drive for storage. 60GB is small enough that you're going to find yourself playing the disk management game all the time, and that's not a fun game to play.
