  1. Corsair is expanding its recently introduced Force range of solid-state drives today to include the F60, F120, and F240 models, sporting 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB capacities respectively. Just like their 100GB and 200GB siblings, the three new drives come in a 2.5-inch form factor using MLC NAND Flash memory chips, have a SATA 3.0 Gbps interface, offer TRIM support and are powered by the SandForce SF-1200 controller.

    I still find these prices ridiculous. just today I found a 1tb HDD for $49.99 and these guys are asking for $200 for 60GB? Maybe it's faster, but it simply isn't worth it for me.

    Agreed. I'm going to do a complete rebuild next spring and plan on getting a 30GB SSD to hold the OS and use as a boot drive. But otherwise, I don't think the price is worth whatever extra performance you get for a larger SSD to hold apps. PLUS, everyone is holding their breath to see how long these things really last. So far, it's just a guesstimate that they'll last "x" amount of hours before going belly-up.

    Agree with TomSEA, I'm doing a similar thing, building a new rig based on the x58 chipset (as my current one is the old AMD64 athlon chipset) and the price some some SSD's are just insane! but 30GB can be had for an alright price, still pricey but the speed of the OS is worth it if your like me and going for a top-of-the-range computer.But going mental on a big(ish) SSD isn't smart.
