I used my vertex 2 60GB to long, I try to use it only for the most important programs. I need to admit, it's to small.
I'm now looking for a new one in the price range of 350 - 500 dollars (that's 300 - 400 euro).
A vertex 3 should be a great product price/performance. But I don't mind to pay a bit more for actual performance.
I think about the Corsair Pro Performance 256GB or the Force GT, Samsung 830, Vertex 3. Let me be clear, a Kingston hyper x or Patriot Wildfire or Plextor M2S is to expensive.
Also if a 350 dollar ssd is a little bit slower than a 500 dollar one, that also doesn't count. It's for daily use, start programs like Visual Studio, itunes, 3DS Max and Adobe After Effects.

I might sound like a noob question, but connecting a SATA 3 ssd to SATA 2 port with SATA 2 cable does work without any problem. That question is in case I use it in my PC instead of notebook.

Samsung 830, Crucial m4, Corsair performance pro all yes. The Corsair pro would be my pick for you as the programs you listed will need a drive that writes incompressible data well.

Vertex 3, Corsair Force 3 GT I cannot recommend.

And yes, you can connect a sata 6gb/s ssd to a sata 3gb/s port. And for cables, as long as it's a high quality cable, it will work for both speeds.

This, I second a performance pro.
