dammit, you beat me to it

+1 on this. . I bought an open box one of these for me self and it works great. $20 off for a product with a ripped box? IMHO the open box is a steal. $20 off for ripped packaging? Don't mind if I do!

Go with the 64GB C300 or 60GB Vertex 2E, both are great drives. I spent hours agonizing over which to pick and I'm very happy with my C300 - but I've realized that either drive would serve me extremely well.

C300:
Faster random 4K reads, usually about 5-7mbps faster than the SF1200 drives - significant when talking about max speeds of 30mbps. Probably accounts for a few seconds faster boot time.

1/16th higher capacity, that 4GB makes a difference!

Vertex 2E:
Much faster sequential writes (up to about 2.5x) and therefore much faster big file copies - like large texture games and high res photos.

Supposedly great OCZ customer care? (I've not heard of many drives failing for either company though)

Hm, you guys make valid arguments. Now i have to make the decision, but i'm still unsure, i've heard good things about Mushkin, when referring to RAM. But im not so sure about their solid states. Anything that makes windows boot faster and i am happy. I am limited by my board also, as it is an older 775. (trying to find a better one, for a steal..somewhere.)

its not hard to tell the diffrence when buying, the model number of the 25nm have a E in them like:

2VTXE60G

whereas the 32nm do not have the E in it, like:

2VTX60G
I'm not even 100% sure that's it, because I bought mine around Boxing Day (before the alleged switch, I believe) and I have the E in mine and everything seems to have proven itself to be the 32nm version. Something about checking the formatted capacity and the firmware that came with it. I still can't really prove it beyond passing those tests, though.

If you're talking about upgrading to another 775 board, I wouldn't bother. You're going to want to take advantage of DDR3 and it's insanely low prices right now, and they were hard to come by when 775 was popular. I would sell what you can (the Q9550 should still get some decent change) and put it towards a cheap SB combo. I'm going to eventually, just need the funds. Plus I've got bigger investments, like a prospective new GPU. I'm happy where I am for now with my SSD with sub-SSD but higher-than-HDD speeds and if you're going to stick with 775 it's probably something you're going to have to learn to deal with. We could form a support group?

I have an Intel M25 and a Crucial C300 in my current rigs. Both perform very well, with the nod going to the Crucial with Sata III. If the budget allows go for the C300. Flash it out of the box with 0007, and watch how she flies. The Intel has done great also, so you can't go wrong with either.

Nice to see another Haligonian around these parts!

Thinking about the M4 myself, any real bonus over the C300 or Vertex 2? Or should I go for the 240gb Vertex 3?

I've heard a lot about failure for the Vertex line - but that was mostly through reviews on Amazon/Newegg etc

I'm in your same position (looking for a 64gb though). From what I;ve seen reading various reviews, crucial m4 looks like a win. Not sure if I'm ready to dive in yet though.
