I want to do a solid state drive I am between these two. I've heard the OCZ is much faster, but I've also heard the Crucial is more reliable. Anyone?

OCZ Technology
Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120 120GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) with SandForce 2281 Controller

m4 CT128M4SSD2 128GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) with Marvell Controller

I also have a wd3200aajs that I was going to use as a seconday, is that going to bottle neck the SSD at all? I'm going to load almost everything I do/play on the SSD

Going with this board

Go with the Curcial M4, inadittion to having a HIGHER satifaction quotion, it is also FASTER than the agility 3!! GEE you just can not trust them manuf - LOL

Did a little digging earlier today for another post:. What I found:
Here is a older review of the OCZ Agility 3 by Anadtech;
NOTE with AS SSD the Sequencial read and writes were the SAME for both Sata II and SATA III ports (203.3 MB/s, almost identical to what I got.)
Ref: [...] -roundup/5
And a 2nd review: [...] _73_3.html

Have 2 128 gig Curcial M4's, 1 128 gig Samsung 830 and 2 120 gig Agility 3's. My systems seems to backup the two links I posted:
