Probably better to go for 1x 120GB SSD rather than 2x 60GB. No real difference in price and it should be faster that way. Besides, the SSDs you picked out don't have the best reviews... There are likely better choices for the same price if for some reason you feel it necessary to go with 2x 60GB.

I only did that because the highest capacity was 60GB for that SSD
