    Other World Computing has just released some house-branded drives with 3 and 5 year warranties and data access and throughput speeds that make other brands of SSD look slow in comparison (though most every SSD released in the last year is amazingly fast). As far as installation goes, Windows 7, WIndows Vista, OS X Snow Leopard, OS X Leopard, and most every distro of Linux can fit comfortably on a 30 GB drive with a couple of other installed programs, but it you play a lot of different games, you're going to want at least a 120 GB drive so you're not constantly doing the file swapout shuffle between your backup hard drive and your SSD.

    Also, you'll need a SSD mounting adapter if your case doesn't have any 2.5" drive bays.
