Ok issues center up with my card so I was not able to buy the ssd I wanted then expenses now keep coming. I am wondering if a 120 might just be better for now to get this update rolling.
It can definitely work, but keep your eyes open for sales on 240GB - 256GB SSD's.
I've seen sale pricing putting them at the upper price point of 120GB/128GB models (mostly the 240GB models), & saw one last week for $70 after MIR.
Currently (in my order of preference)
SanDisk Ultra II 240GB, PNY Optima 240GB, & Kingston V300 240GB are all $100 with free shipping, while the PNY Optima 240GB has an additional $20 MIR.
