I'd get the Samsung 830 128GB. The 840 series has worse controllers (or something, I can remember) and the 830 will give you a longer durability.
If anything's wrong then feel free to correct me!

And install Windows 7 unless you feel like learning a foreign Windows UI.

Im running windows 8 on a laptop so its not alien to me at all, just wanted to know which os makes better use of the SSD and doesn't thrash the hard drive with loads of writes and reads

I believe Vista, 7, and 8 are all optimized to handle SSDs properly, and I don't believe any 1 does it better than the others. A few services are turned off, and that's about it. You can also turn off the paging file to save some space if you want, since it's useless on a SSD.

Actually, I think 7 and 8 are. I don't think Vista is.
