While I have all three in 240/256Gb and find them all quite good, if I had to rate them in order I would say Samsung 830 > Crucial M4 > Agility 3.

Whichever you go with, install it with your HDDs detached, change your bios sata mode to AHCI, and optimize your drive after Windows install:

I'd recommend Samsung or Corsair.

I'd recommend this deal: 128GB Samsung 830 Series 2.5" SATA III Internal Solid State Drive SSD (MZ-7PC128B/WW) $70 + Free Shipping

For Windows and programs 128GB is more than enough.
