New SSD but only have a sata 2 mobo - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
thank you all. I have ordered an Intel 320 120GB drive on sata 2 interface. Since I won't be upgrading for a while it would make more sense to pay extra for storage rather than speed I won't utilize. Thanks again

I made the exact same choice and am loving the Intel 320 120gb on my SATA II laptop =). So fast it is really the best upgrade I've done to a machine!

Is there a specific reason you guys went with the Intel instead of the Corsair ? Reliability ? Better support ? Better all round performance ?

or, you can get a Asus U3S6 pci-e x4 card and gain 2 USB 3 ports and 2 SATA 6 Gb port, it works for me on my SSD to get SATA 6 speeds.

Yeah, but you get worse random performance. Use the native controller.
Once again...

Something like 90-98% of disk usage is random or small read/writes.

The sequential performance is not that important.

This is a C300 on an ASUS U3S6 card with the Marvell driver...

I just bought a 320 series 120g for all those reasons. Just putting my money where my trust is.
