No doubt the performance of both is going to be limited by your motherboard only having a SATA 2 controller, so I would say they would both perform the same, unless anyone else knows any different.

They both will perform the same for your motherboard, with sata 2 you're gonna limit their speeds @ 200ish mb/s so I say go with the 840 250 GB like what scott said.

◾OS Optimization: support for Power option (Samsung high performance) Provided

Anyone know what they mean by "Samsung high performance" here?

I loaded the new version and it changed my power setting from High Performance to Balanced. No big deal, I just set it back.

Do you have an empty PCI Express 2.0 slot? This card might be able to help you get the speeds that you are looking for. Then pick the 840 (Pro on non) that you want.

Saw the product on the intro webpage, my reaction thinking.gif

IMO, may as well go with a Pro but I can see how this can help even with a Pro SSD.

If it's for an OS drive, though, keep in mind that having it on a PCIe card will probably introduce some extra latency. Personally, if it's just $10 difference between 840 Pro 256GB and 840 250GB, I say go with the Pro. If it's more than that, then I'm inclined to go with the non-Pro.

More likely than not, 500GB SSDs will be affordable by the time starmanwarz upgrades his system and they'll all probably be hitting SATA3 limits so I wouldn't really factor in usage in an upgraded build too much.

Some (most) boards will not let you boot an OS from a PCIe SATA/RAIDcard, you must verify that your board can do that if you want to use one of these cards.

Add-on SATA III cards, except for expensive RAID cards, do not provide true SATA III speeds, and are really not worth it, IMO. You'll get improved sequential read speeds up to ~400MB/s, but performance in other areas will be the same or worse.
