If sucks that you cant wait a week or two and get a 64GB C300. Its 129.00 right now, but the C400 are comming out very soon and I imagine the price will drop a few dollars. Thats my choice tho even at 129.00

2nd choice

OCZ Agility 2 119.99

I'm gonna wait 9 days to use it so I can see what deals will come and gone. Before I make my selection.

Truth be told at that size and price you're not gonna see a ton of difference between any of the drives (that are gen2).

c300, Vertex 2, Agility 2, my personal fav the ADATA S599 are all going to be great little boot / OS drives, fast seek times, fast read times, and decent random / write times.

So scope out the best deal you can and enjoy

Newegg has the Corsair Force 60GB for $104.99 right now. Their prices can fluctuate, so I don't expect it to stay at that price for long.

Just a little update I've been looking around and reading. These 3 are the ones I've come down to. Remember this is gonna be used for os drive mainly and then all other programs set to run off a 500gb hhd.

Out of those three, I'd probably get the Corsair, which is comparable to the ADATA but $10 cheaper. I would also suspect that Corsair has better support, but I'm not sure.

I'd avoid the Vertex 2 because you may get a drive with the 25nm NAND.

Well I read about the 25 NAND and that stupid for slower speeds at the same price. So now what it is really down to is is the 10$ for 4gb more worth it over the corsair and which has better support. I know corsair has amazing support but how is Adata's support?

I'd wait for all the new drives to come out. I'm looking at the Vertex 3 which should be a crazy fast drive
