If you do want to keep costs down this is a good deal. M500, which aren't the fastest, but a good deal none the less on a reliable drive.

Crucial M500 120gb for $75.99 with free shipping. Found it on RFD (coupon code there to get the $4 off)

Similar deal on the 240gb using the same code gets it for $128.24 and again free shipping.

Regarding SSD sizes. Flip through reviews here and somewhere like storagereview.com, you are generally better off getting bigger capacity drives than you need. Larger capacity drives seem to have less issues than the smaller drives (like 64's, 120/8's etc...)

Hey guys. Its been nearly a year since I started this thread. I unfortunately didn't buy a SSD at the time because I had to spend the extra $$$ on unforeseen Minivan repairs. But now I would like to "take the plunge". NCIX has a whole bunch on sale for their "April Showers" sale. So if someone can give some advice it would be much appreciated. Budget is about the same $100 to $150 and I was hoping to get a 240+ or two smaller ones. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Which at the time of this post is especially true. Only a $20 difference between the MX200 and BX100 1TB drives at NCIX. *yoink*
