so the most I could get from Sata 2 is 250mb? Why does that sound deeply disappointing? So even if the SSD is super fast, I'll be getting underwhelming performance.

You mean overwhelming right?

Once you get an SSD you will be blown away at how just daily things end up being so much more snappy, issues get resolved faster, boots/reboots faster, and apps load insanely quick.

The difference b/w sata 2 and sata 3 on an SSD for daily used is minimal, I didn't even feel the difference myself once I moved to sata 3.

You will be happy with any one you get unless it has issues. Sandforce firmware is getting better so I wish you luck on getting a good drive. smile.gif

All right..I'll be looking into these Octane drives then. If not perhaps a sale on Black Friday.

Might have to upgrade to Ivy Bridge sooner than expected. Sucks because I'm happy with my 955 for the most part. Just need a better motherboard, but if I'm getting a better motherboard, might as well get a better processor as well.
