Default Difference between these SSD's

I know there's a thread about SSD's right below me, but it doesn't really answer my question, so I guess I'll post a new one. I'm putting an SSD in my sig rig to replace the Vertex 3 that essentially **** itself. I can only spend $100 on it right now, and I want to know what the differences are between these two:

Newegg.com - OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Newegg.com - OCZ Solid 3 SLD3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC

Why is there a $10 price difference? I'm not too experienced in the SSD field, so some help would be appreciated. What about this one, is it better than the former 2?

Newegg.com - Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F60GB3A-BK 2.5" 60GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Cheers!

I'm not sure. I just stuck them in a compare. Maybe it has certain faster speeds?

I did, and now I've narrowed it down between the 60gb Agility 3 and the 60gb Force 3. Which one would you suggest, MoM?

I dunno, I always went with OCZ Vertex. Looks like they are well matched, though.

I recently purchased the 120gb agility 3 and it hasn't given me any problems. It's my first ssd in my first ever build. Boots incredibly fast, worked perfectly out of the box, recognized immediately in the bios. I'm still learning about the technical aspects but I would recommend the agility 3 my from experiences with it. I imagine the 60gb is identical minus the size difference.

Once you have two SSDs in two systems, that fast speed becomes the norm. Don't get that spike.
