Default SSD question

Hi guys,

I'd like to get an SSD for my new computer basically for my OS but would like to stick WoW on it too. For this I'm thinking that 80 to 100G range would be about right. Because it starts to get pricey I'm wondering if there is much real difference between getting a SATA2 vs a SATA3 SSD. I figure just having the SSD will be a huge improvement but it will be about double the price to get say 100G in SATA3 over the 2. So bascially I'm not sure if it's worth it - any ideas?


AMD Phenom II X6 1090t 3.2 GHz
Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H SATA3 USB3.0 Mobo
Mushkin RAM 2x4G 9-9-9-24
OCZ Vertex 2 80G SSD
WD Caviar Black HDD 1TB
Corsair HX650 Modular PSU
XFX Radeon HD 6870 1G
Some random optical drive

You can install WoW on a separate drive from your SSD.

Right now, I have a 60GB OCZ Vertex SSD. I have SC2, and a bunch of programs such as PSCS5, OpenOffice, etc. loaded on there. I still have about 20G free space on it.
Previously, I had a 30GB " " SSD. I was crying for space, had to move my paging files over to a separate HDD.

To me, 60-120GB should be fine.
