Best sata 3 card?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just bought a sata 3 SSD but only have a sata 2 motherboard, was wondering what's the best sata3 card I can get for around $30-40 usd

Thanks.

Just run it off the native SATA 2 ports because it is backwards compatible. You retain TRIM support (not possible I'm pretty sure with any third party controller) and certain areas (I believe random reads/writes) actually are better than third party controllers. You won't really notice much of a difference anyway. An SSD is still going to be very fast.

This x2, though I think I remember reading that Intel addon controllers do support TRIM, but don't quote me, look it up for yourself.

But, yea, sata 2 is the way to go. I never felt a difference b/w sata 2 and sata 3 speeds lol.
