Just got myself a Intel 520 120GB from NCIX (Boxing week sale 2012) for 99$ + free shipping.
This SSD will be used in an old SATA 2 box:

-E6420 Oc'ed to 2.8GHz
-Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 REV 3.3
-2GB Of Mushkin DDR2 ram
-Radeon HD5770 card
-250 GB HDD that will be used as storage

hopefully, this upgrade on the cheap will bring back some "responsiveness" into that rig, that is used by the wife and kid, for web surfing, and the odd game....
