The best drives out right now are the OCZ Vertex 3 and the Intel 510 series. Several people have the Vertex 2 or Crucial and really like them. 80 will be fine for Windows 7 and a fair amount of games. Just make sure you have a second drive for storage and your pagefile.

Yes. I think it's priced well and several people really like the drive. If I had to chose for me, it would either be intel or OCZ. It's personal preference, but they have good reviews and proven performance.

40 would work fine. But to be honest, 60gb is almost the same price. If I'm not mistaken, you can pick up a 60gb Vertex 2 for under 100. 60gb seems to be the happy medium right now for most people. It will have everything you need and give you a little extra for when BF3 comes out ;-)

if you are talking about world of warcraft then no, 40 is not good enough. I have wow by itself on an ssd at the moment and it takes up 25gb, you also have to think of future updates and such. I wouldnt even personally consider putting wow on an ssd that is 60gb with windows. my windows install(plus a couple of small things) is at like 24g, so that would be putting the drive at 50gb and wow is known to have like 1gb patches and such, so i would not do it personally.

Please make use of the edit button. Three of you double posted; it's much easier to read these forums without them.
