The OCZ Agility 3 Drives have good reviews and can be fairly cheap at NCIX. I own 2 of them and love the hell out of them. I use one for my HTPC and the other for my games on my gaming pc. Very quick and reliable. Of course there are higher quality ones out there but for the price they are right on.

Personally I have had bad luck with the Samsung HDD. I would stick with WD Green or Seagate.

As for the SSD, the Samsung 830 is a good drive. What is your budget?

The OCZ Vertex 4 is a great drive from what I have read.

Is this a gaming build? If so, you might want to think about dropping down to the i5 line, simply because multi threading won't help gaming.

Then take the extra money and put it into a better drive.

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
