Hello nfs mate as far as I am concerned can't go past Samsung or Crucial and try make it a 120GB nate that size is very small unless you just intend it for booting it up.

I also suggest 120-128GB instead of 60GB, even for an OS and program only drive. SSDs need at least 20-25% unused space on them for best operation and longest life. 30GB simply isn't enough and 60-64GB would be very marginal at best.

As far as what brand to get, the Samsung 840 Pros are generally considered the best. However, the Samsung EVOs have been making a good showing and would be a good, more economical choice.

Edit: we cross-posted. If it's going to be your only drive in your machine, even 120-128GB is going to be hard pressed to meet your needs, if it can at all. You would be much better off saving up for a 250-256GB SSD. If your machine is down and you need something NOW, you would be better off getting a conventional HDD for now and saving for the better and bigger SSD later. You will be much happier with the results in the long run.

I don't do much with mine either but have had to upgrade to 256GB drives for the main machines already. The Samsung EVO is cheaper and I think better than the Pro to be honest. The Crucials and Corsairs are good though. I have a SanDisk Extreme in my laptop and it is pretty good it has the Sandforce controller in it and I guess though they have fixed the bugs a bit now I was lucky with mine.

But really I would stick with the Samsung.

Bro?

The Samsung EVOs are led expensive than the Pros, are competitive with other brands pricewise, and have been getting good reviews. One reason I recommend the Samsungs is that they use their own controller which is far superior to the Sandforce and Marvel controllers most of the other brands use. The Samsungs also come with their own software, Magician, that help make setting up the SSD much easier and has also gotten good reviews.

Edit: Dang! I keep getting cross-posted!
