Hi,
I am planning on getting a new SSD.

I've thought about it for a long time, and narrowed it down to 2 of the SSDs.

OCZ Solid 3 SLD3 120GB SATA III MLC

Intel 510 Series (Elm Crest) SSDSC2MH120A2K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167042

I am having a difficulty choosing an SSD because the OCZ one seems to have a faster read and write time than the Intel one which is more expensive.

Please help me choose which SSD is better.

Case :Corsair 650d
Mobo :Asus Crosshair IV Formula
CPU :AMD Phenom IIx6 1090T BE
CPU Cooler:H50
Video Card:GTX580

I'd agree on OCZ; very fast drives. I set up a SilverStone HDDBOOST with an Intel SSD and excellent performance, but when I build my rig I'm considering using OCZ drives with two HDDBOOST devices to see how fast I can make a high capacity magnetic array go.
