Sounds like a great deal.

For those of you with SSD, do you also have a disk HD? I was thinking to use an SSD drive for a new build I want to do along with a much larger HD for storage. Keep the OS and program files on the SSD, and then use the other HD for things like pictures and anything that takes up a large amount of space and isn't really needed for faster accessing.

I have this SSD and I like it. It's fast.

Yes, I put my Win7 install and my programs on the SSD.

I use a large 2 TB HD for SSD backup, MP3s, movies, pictures, and other large files.

I am itching to do it. I want to make one rig that is only touched by me. And then I want to refurb another one we have, and have something setup where everytime someone in my family does something to mess it up, some crap program, spyware, etc. etc. etc. etc, I can just refresh the whole damn thing back to a last known good in a the matter of a few minutes of headache free attention. Then they can have a blast with their popups, toolbars, 70% CPU usage IE tabs and I can just use something that works the way I intend it to.

The SSD is nice. Most programs load instantly. Hell, even BF3 pops right up. It's amazing how much your hard drive bottlenecks your system.
