The M4

Edit: Scratch that. Sell your video card and group that with the $100 you are thinking about spending on an SSD and snag a faster video card if you're a gamer. It'll me a much more worthwhile upgrade. An SSD is the final upgrade to any pc, IMO. Only do it when everything else is up to par or your money is better spent elsewhere. However, if you're not a gamer, go for the M4.

I can only recommend the Crucial on your list.

The other two use the sandforce 2281 controller that has a widespread bsod problem.

Google "sandforce 2281 bsod" and you'll see.

The M4 is overall faster and more reliable than the other two.
