SATA III on your board is provided by Marvell 9128 chip. You should avoid it like plague! Use SATA II interface by Intel instead. So you won't get full speeds from SATA III SSD but you might still get one since it will be faster than SATA II SSD anyway. Like Crucial C300 or m4.

I can't say anything about these two drives because I never owned them. But I heard some people had issues with Vertex 3 failing. Plus, Crucial costs less that those two and I know it gives great performance at its price.

OCZ Vertex 3 has been blamed for having BSOD/unresponsiveness issues with the latest 2.06 firmware. I'm currently testing some system configurations to see if I can prove to myself that the 2.06 firmware is indeed to blame. So far so good. Be aware that the Crucial Force 3 has also been reported to suffer from the exact same issues. Apparently both OCZ's and Crucial's forums are flooded with reports.

But coming to your question of which you should get - if your motherboard does indeed have the Marvell SATA-III controller, then you simply won't get the full speeds at all. I've also heard of unreliability issues but I'm not sure which exactly. If you're therefore to stick to SATA-II, an OCZ Vertex 2E is a great buy. If you want a future-proof purchase though, which I recommend, indeed an OCZ Vertex 3 or Crucial Force 3 (they'll both be about the same so get whatever the price tells you is better) is a good choice. If you encounter controller problems, you can always connect your SATA-III SSD to an SATA-II port until sometime in the future when you have a motherboard with a better SATA-III controller.

The Marvell 9128 chipset definitely limits you to 1 PCI express lane so ~ 400MB reads and writes which is 70-80% of it's potential...
Overall the Vertex 3 is great and it's recycling techiques with the newer sandforce controllers are unbeatable... I'd personally still buy it and stick with the Intel Sata II chipset and be futureproof... smile.gif
edit: Also you get TRIM on the Intel chipset.
