Ok, I can go with a 480GB solid state drive, with Sequential Read: Up to 531 MB/s and Sequential Write: Up to 315 MB/s

OR, I can Go with a 600GB solid state drive, with Sequential Read: Up to 270 MB/s and Sequential Write: Up to 220 MB/s

They are both Intel Solid state drives :

Intel 320 600GB

Intel 520 480GB

They both cost the same, will be used for server hosting and gaming, with two Xeons, and will be accompanied by a 1TB
Hitachi Hard Disk

Also, Should I use the SSD as my main (C: ) drive, or should I use my Disk drive as my Main drive???

OS: Windows 7 Pro
 
I would say that you should wait till the end of this week and then check to price on these drives agian. Both the Intel® SSD 320 and 520 are coming with 5 year warranties and are both outstanding drives and both will work very well for your needs. The only real question is can you tell the difference from one drive to the other without benchmarking them.
