So I've finally made the jump to an SSD. Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB.

Xbit gave it a stellar review and it seems to be on par with all the other major second generation performance level SSDs, but for a lower price. Supposedly their customer support is great too, being a US based company.

Thoughts? Will I be blown away? I decided to go big. Might as well when it's less than a dollar a GB with such great performance. I want to put all my current high performance games on it too.

I have two 240 Mushkin Chronos Deluxes, I would not put any other brand in my rig.

Good choice!

I wouldn't use that one even if given one for free. I personally value reliability very much, and the Mushkin is a tier below the top.
What's a sig?

Since I began using Mushkin's RAM, SSD's, and Flash Drives, I have loved them.

Never have any problems and their customer support is great, very nice and helpful.

Not to mention everything performs phenomenally

I personally wont put anything but Intel SSDs in my computer. But yes, you will be blown away by how much quicker your system will respond.

It's not OCZ, but it is using Sandforce. Might have compatibility issues here and there.

That said, 's about time.
