My System Specs

Default What SSD should I pick?

I think it's about time I finally move up to a SSD for my main rig here, there is currently the kingston at ncix for $85 on sale with 64GB of space, I plan to run windows XP on it though so what do I need to look for in a SSD? Should I go for one with garbage collection and that? Or will that not run if I'm using windows XP on it? Can you guys help me pick one out? I'm sorta planning on just doing my main OS and programs on this SSD and then use my 2TB Blacks for first line storage/games/music and such, what should I pick? I'm open to order from NCIX mainly cause of EBP. Thanks in advance for help.

Take the time to read AkG's thread here: So you wanna buy a SSD? Read this first.

If you look under number 3 he addresses XP and SSD's.
