Where can I get the best deal on a high capacity Solid State Drives for my macbook pro?

My machine Specs:

2.53 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
500 GB @ 7200rpm
17"
OSX 10.6.6

I'm not too familiar with the SSD capacity and prices.

Thanks in advance

+1 for the Vertex 2. Put a 240gb in my new workstation build, works great. Got it from Newegg.
