2.3 i7 with 830 samsung. Is it ok regarding Garbage collection?

Hi all

I m thinking of buying the 2.3 i7 model with a 830 samsung 256 ssd
question is, will I be doing a big mistake concerning ssd performance and garbage collection, If I choose to go with manually installing an ssd rather than going for the OEM choice of ssd?

Its not so much about the overall price, its just I will be getting a bigger tax return If I just buy the 2.3 model without the apple ssd, than actually getting the 2.3 with the apple ssd.
