Hi,
I am building my new gaming rig, and i have difficulty choosing which SSD i am going to choose. I want a good reliable one, size is between ~120gb or so.

My current choice: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2CCA 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Since you are building a gaming rig you might want to read a new article about ssd's and gaming published yesterday by Tom's Hardware:

Here is a link to the ssd database:

I have the m4 64g, and am happy with it. 1 thing though, there is a firmware revision for the m4, so check that and update if need be before you install OS

I would also go with the Crucial M4. Definitely check for firmware updates first as well, they seem to still be shipping with 0001 but there is 0002 out that fixes some issues.
