Do you plan on using this drive as a boot drive as well? I ask because the RevoDrive has had some pretty bad luck being a boot drive. Even the mobo's listed in the "supported mobo" list have failed to work with it.

If you are NOT using this as a boot drive, then the Revo Drive is probably the best bet. If a boot drive, then C300 all the way.

I have purchased the OCZ Vertex 2E 50GB "25nm Edition"

Should be good

C300:
Sequential Read: 355MB/s
Sequential Write: 75MB/s
Random 4K Read: 60K

Sandforce 1200:
Sequential Read: 285MB/s
Sequential Write: 275MB/s
Random 4K Read: 50K

Right off of Newegg. Personally, I got a Sandforce 1200 drive as well as I couldn't stand having an SSD with only 75MB/s seq write.
