If you do want to keep costs down this is a good deal. M500, which aren't the fastest, but a good deal none the less on a reliable drive.

Crucial M500 120gb for $75.99 with free shipping. Found it on RFD (coupon code there to get the $4 off)

Similar deal on the 240gb using the same code gets it for $128.24 and again free shipping.

Regarding SSD sizes. Flip through reviews here and somewhere like storagereview.com, you are generally better off getting bigger capacity drives than you need. Larger capacity drives seem to have less issues than the smaller drives (like 64's, 120/8's etc...)
