The Kingston drive linked earlier is good for a budget, as are the two I mentioned. Crucial's M4 and M500 are bit more expensive, but they're built extremely well. At that price you'll want a Samsung 840 EVO though, probably the best bang for your buck right now.
Okay, thanks! I'll look into those

You would see a performance increase but compatibility with your bios/chipset may be an issue.
