PS3 Questions - Looking to buy

OK, I want to buy a new PS3. Should I buy the 60GB or the 80GB? I do not have a PS2 anymore so I wont have any of the older games to play (isn't there a backwards compatibility issue?).

Which should I buy and where? I would like to buy online, but Amazon.com looks to be out (post a link if they have them - I couldn't find them). Buy.com had the 80GB with some Motopack or something for $515.

Suggestions please?

If you want backwards capable, you will need the 80gb.

I got mine from Bestbuy.com. It came with Motorstorm and one controller. I have enjoyed it so far. Blue-ray is nice......

Can anyone post up a link to purchase one for $499 with no tax and no shipping? Best Buy and Circuit Shitty charge tax. Buy.com is $515. Amazon looks to be out.

Anywhere else to look?
