  3. Why it must be Intel or Crucial, is there is any advanced in technologies.
  4. SSD's from other manufactures have a higher failure rate, you can go for Ocz or Corsair and get a slight increase in performance but you will run a higher risk of failure. Samsung are also up there with Intel and Crucial in terms of reliability.

    only difference is Z75 doesn't have ISRT to use a 60 gig SSD for a HD cache.

    I'm not sure if this is US, Canadian, or Australian dollars and do you need Windows? I would hold off on the SSD for now and pick that up later on. Focus on your gpu for now (FPS). Also any SSD smaller than 120 - 128GB is a total waste imo. In fact 240GB on up is the way to go. 120GB fills up quicker than you would think. That and the prices on SSD's keep on dropping so the longer you wait the better.
