I have a small cash for an upgrade and I'm kinda torn between 2 SSDs; Intel 320 and the OCZ Vertex 3 both 120 GB. These 2 are the easiest to get where I'm from and is within my budget if you're wondering. The reasons are as follows:

  • Intel 320 - proven reliable, fits my current setup, 5-year warranty (I don't upgrade often)
  • OCZ Vertex 3 - cheaper, a little future proofing, speeds, etc.

My current setup is SATA II (x58), I don't upgrade often (probably will in the next year or 2). Which one would you get?
