Im planning to get COrsair force series 3 120gb ssd.Can i install it and use it without problem?

I need a person who knows about SSD and we'll talk about it via skype.

Yes it will work, however I don't recommend buying a SATA III SSD when your motherboard only supports SATA II.
It works, but the maximum data transfer rate speed will be capped at SATA II's 300mb/s, and not the ~~500mb/s read/write promised by the manufacturer.

If you plan to upgrade your mobo sometime near in the future it might be worth it to invest in that SSD already. Or you could get 2 x 60gb SATA II SSD's and config them in RAID 0, so you'll get in about SATA III speed.
Or just one 120gb SATA II.
But either way you can't really go wrong:), SSD's are really fast, even SATA II.
I am using myself a SATA III SSD on my SATA II port on my laptop, it's fast nonetheless, but gonna build myself a rig this summer, and get another SSD to config them in RAID 0, on a SATA III mobo:)

Don't even worry about speeds. The point of SSD is instant seek times. Get something stable and well built.

how about getting OCZ Vertex Plus 120GB?
I planned to put my Windows file on the SSD to have lesser boot time and game in the HDD.(can i get faster loading time)?

Total capacity i need is around 30GB for windows,30GB for games,20GB for software/porgram(most likely to be less) and 20GB for reserved.
WIll this be enough or it will burden the SSD with total 100Gb out of 120gb being used.
