Agreed. $200+ 60GB Vertex' aren't worth that price.

I don't think I'm ready to drop $235 + tax on that though, at least for now. I'm trying to save $$ for FERMI (if they end up being as good as speculated)

I saw the 30GB as an excellent option being only $85. I can at least install Win7 in there with a few apps (I only use NetBeans + games anyway)

What you think?

Yeah, and make sure you didn't order it from NCIX the week before for $20 more...

+2....I just purchased a Generation 2 Kingston 64gb SSD. It reads at over 220 MB/s and writes at up to 110. Very fast and no RAID 0 worries.
