Have heard alot of good coming from the Intel SSD but the Crucial supports SATA III soo i cant decide which is better now.?

CPU - I7-860 (CM hyper 212 plus{heatsink} with a PWM 800-3200 rpm fan on it)
MoBo - MSI P55A GD65 (has the new USB 3.0 and SATA III 6GB/s)
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
HD - 500gb Spinpoint F3 (will be replaced with the SSD i choose) For Mass Storage i'm using a Spinpoint F3 1TB drive
Ram - 4GB DDR3 1600 (might buy another pair to have 8GB total)
PSU - SeaSonic 750W Power Supply X750 Gold
CASE - CM Storm Sniper
CD/DVD - $30 Sony model nothing special...
GPU - currently using the HD 5770 from the old system (eventually will get the HD 5850 or GTX 470 going to research them a bit before i buy one)
