Yeah, if this is a gaming build, then drop down to a 3570k and put the 100 bucks you save into a good ssd. Any of these are great. intel probably offers the best performance, best value would be the ocz. crucial is very robust with all around performance/price. I have a vertex 3 and it is a very good little drive.

Crucial m4 256gb

Intel 520 Series 180GB

OCZ Vertex 3 240GB
