    From what I've read, Intel is the way to go. Looking for an 80GB SSD to use as a system drive in a new build.

    Also, do they come with adapters to fit into a desktop hard drive bay, or do you need to purchase them seperately? If so, which?

    The Intel X25 drives are the way to go for SSDs but they are more costly than other brands. I don't know if they come with adapters to fit in 3.5" drive bays but from what I have seen, I don't think they do. You will probably need to buy one separately.

    The X25-M G2 (not G1) drives are the best bang for the buck. You can go to the X25-E, but they're 2 or 3 times the price.
    There's 2 different ways to get the drive, OEM is just the drive and retail is the drive with a 2.5 to 3.5" adapter.
