To say to not get a SSD b/c he has "only SATA 3Gb/s" is completely ignorant because of in my experience the huge leap just going from a regular 7200rpm RAID 0 array to a single SSD is in an editing workflow is great. The near 0 ms access times are what make the most improvement along with the faster 4K reads and iops, that is what makes it worth it for an SSD. So what if the Sequential reads and writes are doubled? In real world performance that does not = double the performance. There are other factors such as the type of file in use.
The main thing is that there will be a far greater difference b/w going from a HDD to a SSD than a SSD on SATA 3Gb/s to SATA 6Gb/s.

First of all I did mention that getting an SSD on SATA II does wonders for the OS and programs while is did not help for larger games on my RAID, so your first two point are moot. Also the jump from a good SATA II SSD to a good SATA II SSD (obviously on a sata III compatible port) will give you an enormous boost in large file loading times which applies to games and other applications that are loading large files. OP was talking about loading large files and if an SSD would help him. Considering he is stuck on SATA II right now a goof raid 0 will load his large files just as fast as a sata II SSD. If he was loading primarily small files, I would said go SSD for sure, but I don't believe he needs to spend that much money right now when he wants SATA III in the future.

Considering that my RAID reads at 230MB average and my SSD reads at about 280MB average the jump for me (keep in mind for large files, not small) was little to none. Going from a ~300MB SSD to a ~600MB SSD (SATA 2 -> SATA 3) is an absolutely massive jump.

That is my opinion. Take it or leave it as I am just trying to help. I don't want to be part of a "you are ignorant and I am right" debate, so I am stopping with this thread here. Good luck OP. I hope I helped.

Just try working with a bunch of 100MB photo files at once in photoshop or a whole library in lightroom, then you will understand the difference it makes. A slower SSD on SATA 2 is faster in my use than a RAID array for my productivity, in Adobe lightroom especially it was night and day. And that was when my M4 was on SATA 2.

Anyways, it doesn't matter I know what a SSD does for my photo and video editing and that is all that matters to me. I'm not making it a debate i'm simply sharing muy opinion and experience as well. You just keep saying ti won't make a difference at all in photo editing when in my use it does.

I have two SSDs, my M4 for the OS and the Plextor M3 series and they speed up video and photo editing a ton and everything is a lot more snappier. I had a single M4 on my X58 build with SATA 3Gb/s speeds and it was nearly identical to as when I had it on SATA 6Gb/s on my new Z68 mobo. The initial change to a SSD is far more than teh change from SATA 3GB/s to SATA 6GB/s. And I had two Spinpoint F3 1TB drives in RAID 0 for my storage...night and day for me.
If you were to upgrade your CPU and mobo, you would need at least a newer i7 for an improvement, and if you were willing to do that you should wait for Ivy bridge which will be released in a few moths.

Can you explain the significance of NAND with respect to sync and async, and which one is more desirable, regardless of price?

This does a good job: http://hardocp.com/article/2011/08/07/nand_flash_faces_off_synchronous_vs_asynchronous/1

As for life difference there really isn't much they are both types of MLC (multi-level) NAND, they have shorter lifespans than SLC (single-level) NAND. Don't worry about life really...you should be set for 5-10 years at least.
