Have been thinking I was going to put a 50GB OCZ RevoDrive in my new PC build, but the price is for sure going to make it a later edition even at $199. Hopefully by the time I am ready to add a SSD they will be down in price even a bit. The OCZ RevoDrive x2 is out of my budget entirely as of right now though.

This is the only type of internal SSD drive I will be able to pack into my HTPC style build though since I will be using up all the HDD bays already so I need a PCI Express option.
