    Overall I'd say any of the sandforce ones. So Corsair F series and OCZ Agility 2/Vertex 2.

    I don't know what you're plans are for it and what you might need, but my experience so far is that a 60gig SSD is adequate for running the OS and leaves enough room to store a good number of standard apps. But it does get tight from time to time and while I have 2 60gig drives, the last one I bought was a 120g.

    If you need super fast response times for something, nothing beats an old fashioned ramdisk. Please check out Lemonaidsoda's thread here. There really should be a 10x thanks button for stuff like this.

    I think he saw speeds that were roughly 20x faster than an SSD. So if you need that kind of speed, you might be better off bulking up on dram.

    Too much hassle since it erases on boot.

    And about the C300 it doesnt work with 6gbs in ICH10

    Technically true, but in practice, not really. I've been using Dataram which allows you to save the disk image as frequently as you wish and also has the option to save the image on system shut down.

    So the most you would actually lose is whatever got written between saves.

    On the chipset issue, I don't know. If an SSD is adequate, cool. If not, its at least good to be aware of other options.
