Intel 320 worth it on a sata3 mobo?

In the market for an SSD for my rig. My mobo is a Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 that has support for SATA3.

Reading around, it seems that Intel SSDs are viewed as being good reliable drives.

The 120 GB Intel 320 seems to be in my price range. the Vertex 3 and the 520 series seems a little too pricey for now.

Is it worth it to get a 320 even though i can support a SATA3 harddrive?

What would be other options? Crucial m4?

    If you are after reliability, Intel is the way to go, specially since they increased their warranty to 5 years on those drives. If you are more concern with performance than reliability, the Crucial m4 is the better option running off of the SATA III port. Otherwise, you'll be running the Intel 320 off of the SATA II port.
