So I'm getting an Asus ROG G74SX-XN1 and I'm planning on getting an SSD to use as a boot drive (while using an HDD for the other stuff) and I saw these two deals today and I'm not really sure which one is better. Here are the links to them:

http://www.buy.com/prod/intel-320-series-2-5-120gb-sata-ii-internal-solid-state-drive-ssd/220601165.html

Pricewise, I can afford either one and they're both roughly the same price (per GB). But I'm just curious as to much space I would need for a boot drive and which SSD is better.
Thanks in advance!

Get the larger one, though I only use 25GB of space in my system lol

Intel SSD are usually more reliable. My friend has a Kinston SSD for about 3 years now and it's still kicking.

The Intel SSD you are looking at is $10 cheaper at Amazon

Why?  Will I need the extra space?  And which one offers better performance?

Thanks for pointing it out! :)  Also, since that's out of stock, I could go for this one too if need be: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004U8ZHY2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?t=slicinc-20&tag=slicinc-20&ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&fb_source=message
