There is this also, a Intel SSD 40 GB with a Western Digitial 500GB Blue HD for $139.99 with free shipping. I was going to post the link but now there sale page won't load for me... Maybe they are correcting something?

Edit: Seems to be on and off for me, but here's the link: NCIX.com - Buy NCIX Storage Bundle Deal Intel X25-V 40GB SSD & Western Digital 500GB Blue Hard Drive - X25-V 40GB & WD 500GB BLUE In Canada.
Haha yep. I found that on there last night. If I decide to get one by the 13th, I've decided to get the OCZ Vertex 2 for $150

My current installation of 7, updated and patched is 20.3GB. My PF is 4GB and my hibernate file is disabled. All my libraries are stored on a separate partition. With your 12GB of ram, I can see 30GB being used.

yeah I saw that but mine is brand new and will be less (roughly $180) once the rebate comes back in about 2 months.

I was considering it though until I saw that NCIX deal. I know its 80GB compared to 60GB, but the vertex 2 uses the new sandforce controller and has faster speeds, especially in small file writes.

I ended up getting the 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 from NCIX. It was out of stock but I ordered it anyway. Later that day, It's "in stock" then the next day it was shipped. Should be arriving soon.
