The perfect SSD for those who find the 120GB models too high in price and the 60GB insufficient as a system boot SSD.

I agree but I still want to see the real IOPS at 4k read/write (not what the specs are suppose to be)

robert3892, I don't know how much porn you want to put on those 60GB + the OS, but even a 32GB drive is enough for a full system install + necessary software. But yeah, if you're being a warez whore installing all the crap you don't need, not even a 1TB SSD should suffice... porn included.

I don't know about you though a 60GB drive today is like my 500MB drive back in 1996, I think? Most people will want to install more than one or two games in addition to their OS and applications.

Having a 90GB drive is nice for people who only play a few games simultaneously and actively remove installs every now and then.

Good news either way, 120GB SATA-3 drives with decent controllers are now hitting the $200 and slightly below with rebates, imagine what one more year will bring? :-)

I have a OCZ Vertex 2 at 60GB and its not enough some times.. I can't install more than 2 games(big latest games) and have my applications at the same time. I've got Win7 OS and yes its quite big compared to WinXP.. but I can't go back to WinXP because I have 6GB ram and an SSD so its one way :}
