Word of caution, your motherboard does not natively support AHCI so you will not get the speeds that are advertised on paper. My father has an Intel 320 80GB hooked up to a 780i FTW and he gets around 211 MB/s read and 90 MB/s write (270/90 advertised). I'm not trying to steer you away from buying an SSD but you just need to know that your speeds will be a little bit slower than what is advertised on paper because you running in IDE mode rather than in AHCI mode.

About the only things the 780i MCP loses to Intel's new ICH9R south bridge are a couple of extra USB ports and support for Matrix RAID, which allows multiple RAID partitions to span a single set of drives. The 780i MCP also lacks support for the Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI), although unlike the ICH9R, it's able to implement features like hot swap for SATA drives and Native Command Queuing without.
