    1 - ADATA S596 Turbo 64GB
    2 - Corsair F60 60GB
    3 - Corsair Extreme X64 64GB
    4 - Corsair Nova 2 60GB
    5 - OCZ Agility 3 60GB

    You should remove the first 4 choices. It's only between 5 and 6.

    But can you still up your budget a bit? The OCZ Vertex 3 and Corsair Force GT, especially if the price increase is not that much, would be worth it since they have a great performance lead over those 2. If they're available there...

    The OCZ Vertex 3 and Corsair Force GT are way to expensive here... like 150 Euros... :(

    How about OCZ Agility 3 or OCZ Solid 3 , both 60Gb of storage ???

    To be fair you wont notice the difference between the corsair force 3 and the force gt as your motherboard only has SATA2 so it can't run them at max speed anyway. You'll be limited to ~300MB/s on SATA2 when the vertex 3 and corsair force series can reach speeds ~550MB/s
