SSD purchase

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
So basically, after christmas i'm planning on buying a few things. One being an SSD. I want it for the boot drive, to house windows 7, adobe cs4, along with a few games. Question is what kind should i get without spending to much money.. Best bang for buck i guess. I also plan to eventually get another and RAID them for performance and extra space.. Suggestions?
Finally an i7

dembo, i hope its bigger than 60gb. I just have my OS, office and black ops installed and I got 15gigs left. I'm thinking uninstalling black ops and putting it on my 500gb seagate.

sorry for the first question. I have a Intel x25m g2 80Gb and i love it. its really reliable and its only around $200 for 80Gb which is plenty for a boot drive.
