Should I take the plunge and get Corsair F60 and F180 SSD's Or wait?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Simple question:

I'm looking at picking up this Corsair F60 SSD for a boot drive -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233124

And I'm looking getting the Corsair F180 -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233148 -- for games and photo/video apps.

I'm this close to hitting buy, but I know OCZ has some 500MB/s read/write SSDs coming out in Q2 (got to see them at CES). Should I wait...?
