Since you are saving for it, one assumes that you do not need to purchase immediately. That is probably a good thing as prices will drop (although no one can predict how rapidly).
I second that and I seriously doubt it's worth buying a SSD drive right now. let the tech mature a bit and the price drop before buying one. If money isn't an issue, and it doesn't seem to be your case, buy one. If you're saving to buy a SSD, think twice, or more, and invest into something else instead. $450 for a drive isn't worth it. a cheaper and fast regular hard drive mounted with rubber band trick or alikes would make you as happy, if you're looking for silence more than speed.
And I'm not mentioning the problems some some controllers likes the ones from jmicron. Somebody posted a link about it somewhere in the thread.
