I'd probably have to go with 2x X25M G2 80GB drives, unless something else offers similar performance/price with higher capacities
Tried to update Kingston 40GB SSD's FW with Intel tool, no luck - Page 4 - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

Read from here. After this you should be able to get the SSD Toolbox working w/ the Kingston 40GB SSDnow. So manual/scheduled TRIM should work.
