would a 512 last two times the 256?

That's an overly simplistic question to a very complex set of possible answers, but assuming you mean total amount of writes, yes, it should have double the endurance.

What will you use the drive for?

For most people, SSD endurance is not an issue. Storagereview and other sites have abused SSDs with good results:

SSD Performance Review - 270TB Written

(from xtremesytems.org. 1000 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte.

Also, it might be a better idea/cheaper option to buy an "name-brand" SSD and then buy a separate enclosure.

I realize that I was dumbing down the issue - thanks for your reply!

the boot drive in a Windows 7 PC.

Dell Studio XPS 8100

i7 870 2.93 GHz

16 GB RAM

6 GB/s SATA

Can you elaborate on this? I'm not sure what you mean. Thanks.

I would not be worried SSD endurance on a modern SSD. It just isn't an issue under typical or even most "extreme" desktop loads. Only the very, very most severe desktop use cases are going to be an issue, and 99.999% of enthusiasts never reach these loads.
