My idea is, wait until the 3rd Gen Intel SSD's hit, in about 2 months.

After reading about them in this thread, considered that but I need to get this built within the next two weeks before the woman gets the chance to sap all my cash. Women.

I'm sure eventually Mushkin will have release a newer firmware. 1.23 firmware is suppose to be an interim firmware and Sandforce still need to plug away a bit more to fix some things.

The toolbox can update firmware, read smart values, secure erase.

That's what I'm saying, intel releases new hardware, then other companies have to follow with something. I'm saying once intel releases their new hardware, other companies will have to at least match performance/capacity. So yeah, I'm not just looking forward to intel alone, but just the next step in the evolution of SSD's!
