Default Which SSD

Hi, im looking at ssd's, and im not sure which one to get, i only want like a 64/60gb one. The crucial c300 64gb looks appealing as i have a sata 6gb/s motherboard so it has read speeds of up to 335mb/s, but only 70 mb/s write speed. Would this drive be fast as loading programs but be slow at installing program? is that how it works? I dont mind it being slow when installing programs, i mainly want stuff to open fast. Is this a good ssd, or should i look else where?

Thanks

No difference theoretical because the read / write is not 6 gbs

ok, just wondering, what read/write speed do normal hard drives have (roughly, say a 7200rpm one), are they as high as ssd's, are they nearly 300 like some ssd's
