In fact SSD's has a longer life span than the mechanical Hard drives,this is mainly because the SSD's do not have moving parts,wich makes them less prone to failure.

A normal SSD can go past of the 3 years of life without problems,until the blocks start to wear off.

Your mobo supports Sata3 yeah, but that controller isn't very good and I'd imagine you'd get only about 200mb read on the M4 SSD instead of the 400mb+.

The new SB p67 chipset is what you want for full Sata3 support.

I have used a 120Gb OCZ Vertex 2 (it rocked)
And am now using am using an OCZ Agility 3 as just a boot drive.
Both have worked really well. My understanding is that the Sandforce drivers are still the best. The best thing to do is read up on how to maximize longevity - for instance don't have your documents on it. send that stuff to a hard drive

However, as far as I am aware, usage of the OS on SSD (Zerogamer22 asked me about that earlier), it just bother me a bit due to notoriety of NTFS. The OS just rewrite the journal one time too much (pointing the complaints of SandForce-based SSD shooting its feet after being used a bit too much). If he wanted to use the SSD for a long time, I recommended to use a regular hard drive and have Windows use it as a RAM (pagefile) disk to save the SSD excessive wears. Just mt two cents.

Actually, there are couple of ways to lengthen the life expectancy of the flash chips soldered on SSD boards. 1. Reassign pagefile to a hard drive. 2. Cool it as much as possible (write cycle is usually affected by junction temperature as mentioned in several flash IC datasheet). 3. Get a DRAM SSD for pagefile, as well (pointing to #1, although more expensive but relevant). 4. Buy a larger bank of RAMs and be careful about how much programs you open (not everyone cares, BTW).

Just go with what they recommended, as the quality of SSD also really counts. (Also, I must emphasize, back up your stuff onto a regular hard drive or another SSD being marked as a backup drive, both preferably in a USB enclosure for longevity reasons. You don't want to lose your stuff whenever SSD just flip belly up or when the firmware feels like going FUBAR'd.)

If you want SSD, just get it. Also, buy a water hard drive chiller too, your SSD will definitely thank you. You also will have to have another SSD / HDD in enclosure just as an insurance policy.

I may get SSD eventually, just I will set it up in a way the SSD will not be messed with by the OS unnecessarily.
