Should I get the OCZ 32GB Oynx drive, Kingston 30GB or the Intel X25-V 40GB. I will be moving to Raid 0 in the future but i want something that will be decent and not alot of money and get experience with SSD's. Also, I will be doing alot of multi-tasking, gaming, browsing the web, and lauching alot of apps. Bonus feature I would like something that would support trim feature but if it doesnt thats alright, I will be using Windows 7 Professional N x64 (MSDN).

Just go the Intel, it's from a solid company, I believe it's random numbers are better then all the others, and Intel's support and software are not some crazy forums...

Just in time, Anandtech does a review on all three of these drives. That link what you need.

I would go for th X25 V regardless. Best performance and capacity for $10-20 more than the other drives.

Out of the three, the intel is the best, the second is the kingston, and in a distant third is the onyx. The onyx is an alright ssd if you are just getting into them because it runs in an indilinx amigos controller which has half of the channels of the normal indilinx barefoot(which is what most decent ssd's run).
