Thanks for the input. I also saw - Buy Kingston SSDNow V Series Gen II 64GB 2.5IN SATA2 Solid State Disk Flash Drive - SNV425-S2/64GB In Canada. but I cringed slightly at the lower speed. I'm currently running two WD Caviar Blacks in a RAID 0 setup, and I want a noticeable speed increase. The Kingston 64GB is definitely cheaper (roughly 1.7x cheaper), but its read and write speeds are also considerably slower. What do you think?

Edit: Just a quick addition to my post, the OCZ Vertex 2 40GB SSD is $110 rated at 280mb/s read and 270mb/s write, and the Kingston V Series Gen II 64GB SSD is $105 rated at 200mb/s read and 110mb/s write.
The OCZ topped all the charts and tied a few times in the HWC tests, so it's definitely going to outperform the Kingston, but it's about 1.7x the price; is it worth it?
