Im considering a vertex 2 SSD over a vertex 3; but I was wondering if there was really that much of a difference in the two SSD in regards to performance, would the difference be significant enough to justify the $100 price gap.

If you have (or are planning on upgrading to) a SATA III machine the newer revision is nearly twice as fast.

This review does a good job of showing the difference between Vertex 3 and Vertex 2 (actually Corsair Force which performs the same).

During normal usage the differences will be very small.

I would advise against Vertex 2 though. It's got the worst reliability on Newegg of any SSD. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227551

Crucial M4 comes close to Vertex 3 performance while it costs less and it's more reliable.
