    Which solid state drive is good for a desktop? One that is the best price to performance would be preferable. Oh and does SSD work good with games?

    I've read a few reviews on the OCZ Vertex, G.Skill Falcon, and SuperTalent Ultradrive series and so far the G.Skill Falcon series looks like a really good buy/performance.

    Well the reason they are more expensive is because they are some of the better ones, you don't want to go with a cheap one. I don't recall who knew the difference but I'm sure will chime in somewhere.

    I'm picking up a 64GB SuperTalent Ultradrive. The speeds a really nice and its only $195 bucks which is pretty good for price/performance.
