I can either purchase an OCZ Agility 3 120GB for $169 or a Crucial m4 60GB for $130, question is which one? I don't really mind about the capacity, but this is an everyday work PC that spends its time shifting 1 - 10 GB .avi's/mkv's around. I also have a 500GB scratch drive (7200RPM Barracuda) and a 2TB WD20EARX as bulk storage. The board is a SATA 6GB/s Asus F1A75 V-PRO. For this type of work, which one?

Double the capacity for only $39 more, definitely go for the Agility 3.
The 120GB Agility has a 16-piece NAND configuration compared to the 8-piece NAND for the 60GB M4, which equates to better performance.

They are suggesting the Agility 3 due to the price difference per SSD size, but you can get the Crucial M4 128GB for $169 as well...

Personally, I like the Crucial series better, but most SSD's perform similarly. And according to Tomshardware SSD hierarchy, the M4 is two tiers above the Agility 3...
