Ah, I see. In reality it's not even going to feel any different, let alone perform a lot better.

The Crucial M4 and Samsung 830 are both great drives Don't get me wrong, but the Intel drives are better IMO.
Edit: Just realized the emphasis on budget drive.

Lol no. Intel 320 drives are absolutely terrible - recall the 8MB bug? Some people said the issue reoccured after the firmware update that was supposed to fix it. Not to mention that the 320 is barely faster than the X25M-G2. Intel 520 is good. But now that the new 520 replacement is going to be Sandforce-based... not so sure on Intel.

I'm looking at getting a Vertex 3 from OCZ, how does the M4 gets so much praise, just because of it's price?

In what way? The only actual advantages the M4 has are a slightly lower price (830 is back down to 159, btw, 4L) and slightly better 4k random read performance. The 830 has the advantage with about everything else.
