Hey guys,
I'm looking to get a 128 GB SSD, but I'm not sure which make or model to go for. I'm looking for something 50/50%, price & quality.

I'm looking to get i5 3570k, KINGSTON HX Predator,DDR3, 2400MHz, 8GB(2x 4G) and Mainboard MSI Z77A-GD65, Socket H2(1155). So, basicly I'm looking SSD to match with it. Any other suggestions on other components are welcome aswell.

They are all quite honestly becoming a steal at this point! Right now is a good time to get a Samsung 830 as the 840 series has just been introduced so they are trying to liquidate the old stock. Same thing with the Plextor M3/M3 pro as the M5 series is now available, both are excellent as well as the Crucial M4 (which might be the cheapest of this bunch now but is still a very strong and reliable performer!). Really you can't lose with any of the above.

As dominyon said. I have an M4 but the prices for 128GB from most other manufacturers are also very attractive.
If needed, make sure you add in a 1-2TB HDD for your data storage (and secondary installations). Only put your OS + your most frequently used programs + games on the SSD.

well, just go for one of the deals. You won't notice the difference between the Crucial m4 and the kingston hx 3k and the plextor m3 anyway, unless you use for servers and things like that

they are selling now the hx 3k 120gb for 70$:
