Whatever my budget is would determine the quality of the build. But top quality is always win if you have the money for it.

What exactly does Corsair P128 (CMFSSD-128GBG2D) 2.5" 128GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) do? I have seen it around but am really confused on what exactly it is.

It's a solid-state disk. It serves the same purpose as a hard drive, but the loading times are much faster.

Unlike a traditional hard drive, a SSD has no moving parts. A normal hard drive has platters inside that spin with heads moving across them to read data. This slows down data access. A solid state hard hard drive has no moving parts, containing data on non-volitile (which means data isn't erased when the system is powered off) memory chips. Because of this, data access is much faster. For instance, if an operating system is installed on a solid state drive, booting into it could take a few seconds compared to about a minute to get the desktop and actually beginning work. Also, becuase they have no moving parts, they don't wear out as quickly as traditional hard drives do. However, this reliability and speed is more expensive so people often choose to put only their operating system and one or two critical applications on a solid state drive.

Also, the size of the ssd, not many offer more than 128 gig.

Well, I know there's a 160GB version of my SSD. I got this the other day, took me 15 mins to install Vista. And about 7 seconds to load windows. It cost me £171 for this SSD, and honestly after using it; it was well worth it, the speed is truly amazing.

So it basically means that all applications and programs will load faster? Does that include loading screens in games and so on?

Yes, since access to the hard drive is faster with an SSD, loading times are faster. Working with the data, like in Photoshop might not be faster since rendering requires memory not hard drive space. On a side note, you can use SSD's in anything that accepts SATA, like a PlayStation 3.
