P,
Before trying to do anything with the Corsair, go to its forums and read up on proper install method for your SSD. I betcha BRINK has a SSD tutorial. I read his one for installing of OS and optomization.
Good Reads!

If you make a mistake or OS install fails for whatever reason. You do not just delete and reformat the drive and go again. SSD's are not spin drives, they should be erased to factory condition prior to another OS install attempt. This why I suggest Corsair tech forums. Should be able to download tools and/or FW updates from there. Be prepared.

Generally,
Make sure mobo bios are up to date.
CPU, ram settings right.
Disconnect all other drives prior to OS install.
Connect SSD to SATA port 0 with quality cable.
Connect cd-rom to port 5. Set bios to boot cd-rom only.
Decide whether you want IDE mode or AHCI mode. Your older board might like IDE mode better???????
Consider "over provisioning" your drive.
Allow W 7 install disk to do everything, boot drive allocation size your only concern. (over provisioning)
After OS install. Get or have on hand, the Intel X38 chipset driver for W7 32 or 64 bit. Vid card, lan, sound. All current versions W 7 from each respective companies website. I would have downloaded all such items to CD/DVD prior to OS install.

luck

Is there any way or website to compare the speed of those 2(two)?
I mean...for example if the speed of velociraptor 150gb is 100 read/write and Revodrive 80gb is 120 read/write forget it.
Here is an article with plenty of performance comparisons:

P,
I am just relating what worked for me and what you need to know about SSD basics. If you want to jump off be my guest. Your first leap was for a REVO, you were gonna buy it remember, just send me the $'s since you seem to have money to burn.
The tech is different, be prepared, staves off disappointment. All you have to do is read. I got 2 years of reading SSD forums where everyone was in a hurry. Not happy campers and it was "always" the hardwares fault, not theirs. OOPS
