Not going to be writing much to a 64Gb SSD other then installing the OS arnt you? Reading speed is the most important to me. And i got my M4 for 80$ to at the time of purchase.
Only thing i will put on the SSD is small programs like FireFox, paint.net, ect, that dont take much in the first place.

Everything else will be going to the 640Gb HDD

also, this is a bit confusing?

Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
"Sequential Write AS-SSD 85MB/s"

Newegg.com - Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (mine)
"Up to 95 MB/s (SATA 6Gb/s)"

But i basically got it due to the newegg deal i got.


Also, i need to upgrade my SSDs firmware,

AnandTech - The Crucial m4 SSD Update: Faster with FW0009


Just for now its plenty, when i want to, ill upgrade it and unlock its potential.

I don't think the heatsink is big enough. lol Looks good. Might want to work on some wiring management though. You can fit all those wires behind the motherboard tray.

An exceptionally large portion of OCZ's GenII and GenII drives have been reporting to fail 3-12 months after installation. This is what I've read.
