It also allows you to do firmware updates on the drive, and has the TRIM software to install with it.

This IS a good choice. It's the same drive as the OCZ vertex but has a 10 year warranty. I have one. I would not change the decision.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

I'm running the Intel X25-M 80GB Gen2. While that seems small to most people, I also have a 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black in the box for storage. With hibernation disabled, my pagefile on the WD and system recovery set to only consume 2% of my drive, after installing Win7 64-bit Ultimate, with all apps that I use and a couple of games (Wolfenstein and Crysis), I have more than 50GB free.

I love my Intel drive and would recommend it to anyone. I see they are down to $249 in many places now...so getting more affordable everyday.

Do you actually need a 256GB drive? You aren't going to find one of the higher performing drives at t his capacity on your budget.

These drives are great for high performance, but too costly for data storage. So, why not go with a smaller OS and app drive and use a standard hard drive for data storage?

Check this: Intel X25-M 80GB 2.5" SATA SSD Solid State Drive - Toshiba -- but I don't know about the international shipping.
