Out of these two lights which of these would you go with if you could have either one.

Streamlight m3 a little smaller then the m3x and less bright
Streamlight m3x a little bigger and brighter

Just so you all know. I cant afford a surefire so lets not even go there..

I have a Surefire M101. 125 or 225 lumens of well focused 9 volt combat weaponlight vanquishing the night. Built rock solid too.

Before you say you can't afford it - watch for one used and beat up. I paid less for mine than a new M3X. Every part can be replaced if it were to break. In my case, it meant a new mount and a new lens. The body is near indestructible - guy before me took a hammer to it and dented the rear of it, but it works great. Total out was not much more than a M3.

A Surefire P101 (6 volt version, 65 or 125 lumens) MSRP $180
M3X $160
Not much difference in price, especially if you can get one used.

Another idea is to ask brightflashlights what he thinks or could supply.
