Go with the Agility 3. It will give you better performance, even with a SATA 2 motherboard.

The Agility 3 Seems like a better ssd. When you upgrade your computer you'll always be able to use the extra speed.

Please be aware that the Sandforce controller chip used on some of the OCZ SSD's like the Vertex and Agility 3 seems to to have a rather odd issue that causes the drives to either drop off the system (BIOS suddenly can't see them) or a sudden BSOD will occur.

^5 +1 what mousemonkey said.

SandForce based solid state drives and OCZ in particular have experienced more than their fair share of problems. in one 6 month period OCZ issued 5 firmware updates.

And guess who didn't research any of that before buying an Agility 3 SSD. :sweat:
