With the Agility 3 (as MMO linked) the asynchronous NAND flash will lose some performance in incompressible reads and writes compared to a sandforce ssd with synchronous NAND like the Vertex 3 or Force GT. At the end of the day, it probably doesn't equate into much difference in the real world.
I would go for the Agility 3, not necessarily because its a better deal compared to the Force GT 120GB, but because its still a very good deal and within your price range. If you need a more "professional" opinion, TR nearly recommended the Agility 3 in this article had it not been $13 more than the Corsair Force 3 at the time of publication.
