You could always donate it to a worthy cause (not that I'm dropping any hints, mind).

Seriously, if you're thinking about an SSD, go for it!

You should buy ME an ssd drive!!

I really only see 2 options,
1) Look through your system and find your weakest link that $200 can fix.
2) Buy your Mother some flowers and take her out for a nice dinner.

Oh yeah, I could buy my mom some.. ah nevermind!

I have an OCZ SSD, but it's only 30GB, and I believe I can get more true performance and space by buying Intel!

That is my video.

If you already have an SSD, the only thing you will likely get is more capacity...you aren't going to see a big performance boost. The value in the SSD is the ultra low random access times. And since you already have that, you aren't going to see much else. While the read/write numbers will likely benchmark higher, real world performance won't change.

Hmm.. it's not really about performance, ohwell, it is kinda.
I'm more like buying it for space, but then I could just buy a HDD right? But it's just not the same!

By the way, does Western Digital make Solid State Drives?

Edit: they do! http://www.wdc.com/en/products/solidstate/

For storage space, get a regular hard drive. They are far cheaper and offer tons more storage. For holding music, internet downloads and video files...there simply is no reason to have them on SSD storage space. If you play a 4 minute MP3..you got 4 minutes to load the song. You don't need it from an SSD and loaded completely in a fraction of a second, it buys you nothing.

6.0Gb/s? Isn't that like a SSD? I have ASUS P5Q Pro, no idea if it's able to

you will have to check with ASUS website if there is a BIOS update or a drive max on the bios. the SATA 6.0Gb/s is just stating that its Sata 6/0 compatible
