Hard to say, once you go SSD, you'll want more & more! Worse than nicotene, not as bad as heroin!
You should talk to Trademark before you decide. He got what I thought would have been an innocent little SSD & it rips other SSD's for breakfast!! Regardless, any SSD as boot / windows drive will change your life. It's worth any amount of money they want & $79- is a good price.
I don't know that the 10K drives are worth the extra bucks, heat. Just get a 1Tb with 32Mb cache or more. WD is working on the successor to the WD10001faals, it will have 64Mb cache, should signifigantly speed up acesses. The only time the higher RPM is worth it is if you constantly use blocks of drive space 6Gb or more. Like Photoshop!
