Need some advise on new hard drive

Hey,

I'd like to buy myself a new primary hard disk drive/ solid state drive.
I use the drive only for the operating system and all programs like Firefox and Office.
Games are on other drives.
My current hdd has got 124gb, and the space is getting smaller fast.
My budget is €75,- wich is about $90,-.
Can you guys give me some advice on what is important to know and what is faster.
I thought about the WD VelociRaptor (of 250gb) or maybe an SSD, what is better or am i missing something?

Rienha there are no comparisons between mechanical hard drives (WD Velo) and any SSD's even the first slow one. The SSD just loads applications so much quicker.

The Samsungs have such a good name due to the fact they manufacture their own chips, unlike most others who have to buy them in, and they are very much the leaders in reliable SSD's.

You can select any SSD mate, it is your system. Me I have used most SSD's since they first appeared. I have decided to only use Samsungs for my own builds.
