I'm planning a few upgrades for my Intel Q6600 Core2Quad desktop (socket 775). I'm planning on upgrading to a SSD and replacing the CPU heatsink (which is still the stock Intel heastsink fan). I'm kind of trying to limit the list down to items available for Prime shipping on Amazon.
My motherboard is an Asus P5K Deluxe/Wi-Fi. Here is a link to the specifications of the mobo:
The heatsink I'm looking at is this one:
But I am open for suggestions.
On the SSD, I'm looking for best-GB/Price ration and interested in 250GB drives. Not really interested in the fastest drive out there.

But if someone has a strong reason I should consider some other SSD I'm all ears.
Thanks for your time and input!
