Windows 7: Choices of SSD's

Choices of SSD's

Well I am going for a ssd and I am lost..
Should I get
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Or
Newegg.com - Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
I was leaning towards the 830 as I have heard good things about it but not sure.
And my current HDD is
Newegg.com - Western Digital WD Blue WD10EALX 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
I only have 1 SATA III port so could I just hook my current reg HDD to Sata II and then hook my SSD up to Sata III?
My motherboard is
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128555 if it matters.
And will I need a 3.5 inch bay thing or whatever for SSD?
Will I need a sata cable? or does it come with my SSD?
If not please newegg link me!
Thanks so much! Nobody has been able to answer me that I have asked

Think of it this way,

1, COST - What's the most you want too spend
2, Size - What's the most you want for your OS, I use 90gig. (Cost me 85 - there now 45)
3, Sata Speed - Look at the write speeds and get one that matches your Sata speed.

Done.

I placed mine in the Floppy area of the case. And no you generally don't get a Sata cable.

I don't see why these don't answer your question, If your willing too spend the cash on a SSD what's your limit, What size you looking for. And as for your motherboard, it has 1 sata 3 what's all you need really.

I'm saying my CURRENT HDD is hooked through sata 3 i believe. would it work to connect it to sata 2?
then I use the 1 SATA 3 port for my SSD?
and would I need a 3.5inch bay for my ssd?
Link to a sata 3 cable? there is so many..

For the 3.5 bay thing your talking about, belonging you screw 1 part of it down and it stays put your be fine, it has 0 moving parts and thus causing nothing too move it or shake it so therefore you have no vibrations.

Not if you dont want too buy one, depends on the case, as I said I placed mine in the floppy area and screwed down with 1 screw.
