What 'Gen3' are you referring to? The Intel 510 is their performance model while the 320 is their mainstream drives. I can't suggest the 320 really. It doesn't perform all that much better (if any) than the previous generation X25-M, offers no price decrease, and in whole is likely less reliable.

As for the 510 versus the Vertex 3. The Vertex 3 likely is the performance leader but it also uses 25nm NAND which is believed to be less reliable and prone to more bit errors. I likely would still get the Vertex 3 though.
