I am looking for a 60GB SSD and I can't decide between the following drives

-OCZ Vertex 2
-G.Skill Pheonix Pro
-Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe
-Patriot Inferno

Can you help me decide?

Crucial has the only lineup of Sata III ssds for sale at newegg. If I'm not mistaken your motherboard has Sata 3, or 6Gb/s, right?

According to the stats on newegg this will run faster in the Sata 3 port. Up to 355MB/s! Doesn't seem to be any more expensive than Sata 2 ssds of the same size either.

I'm not sure if other sata 6 ssds are available yet. These are the only ones currently carried by newegg. I imagine that will be changing very shortly though.

Unfortunately, his mobo does not support SATA 3.

It is still a valid point if/when you upgrade to a mobo that does support SATA 3, you will be able to access that extra speed. Something to consider.
Otherwise, go with the Mushkin. Like nzgroller, i am also a Mushkin fanboy.
