Good source for a Express card 16GB SSD under $30

My laptop has bad overheating issues at the HDD because it's constantly running at Max load. I need a 16 GB expresscard SSD which would be just enough for Ubuntu. Does anyone know of a good source for a SSD under $30? I'll never use my expresscard slot anyway, so this may put it to use. It's a 54/34mm slot. Or an adapter solution. Thank you.

@danj @mayer Anyone?

@pccheese - George, I doubt you'll find one for so little. How about a micro-drive like this: IBM 1GB Micro-drive

Alright, thanks. Do you know if I can use my wireless card slot for an SSD?

I doubt it as the needed driver may not load

I found the reason my HDD was overheating. In the BIOS, there is an HDD option for quiet, performance, and bypass. I suspect the performance mode forces more voltage that this cheaper HDD can't handle, and overheats. I put this settings on bypass and now the HDD stays much cooler.
