I went with the 120GB Force 3 because of the price, twice the space for a bit more money.

Does it come with a bracket? eBuyer buyers also bought a bracket...

If it doesn't I'll make one from Meccano

Most do. Then again most modern cases have SSD support.

I have a feeling my PC will take longer to get out of the bios than for windows to start once it does.

I notice the eBuyer price went up by £15 on the SSD after I bought one, Thats always satisfying

Heh... I don't think you realize that includes loading all of those resource hungry programs. CS5.5 is awefully slow on a C2D and a hdd. That and mac takes the first 12 - 14 seconds before it even starts to boot the OS. That's the one thing that EFI is pretty slow at, I swear I could boot a BIOS faster than EFI does. It is improving though on the more recent Dells.

I am pretty sure it compares their SSD with the standard MAC drive...
