I can get another vote for the Vertex 2, absolutely love this drive. Phenomenal support from OCZ as well.

Yep that is the one you want. Was about to chime in but dinner was being served. I have been putting the 120GB Vertex 2 into almost all of the builds at work and people are just amazed at the performance.

I wish I could get the 120 gb model but it's to much money for me, maybe if the price drops i'll get it
