new ssd - wnich model and capacity ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
good morning, I hope that I came across a good forum biggrin.gif

My Intel SSD is broken and I need buy new. I looked at the new disks, but they are on SATA III. I have a MOBO with SATA II. Is it compatible?

Reading the forum I saw that most people recommend these two drives - Crucial m4, Samsung 830 and Plextor M3 (in my country isn't it available). I have for you a few questions. How much I lose in performance SATA III on the SATA II ? Due to the SATA II which SSD and capacity I choose ? Use only the basic software with two games (~50 GB). Take the 64GB version with poor performance or 128GB with a better perfomance ?

I care about boot time, instalations games and programs, loading levels in games and the support from the producer. I need performance in everyday use, I use rarely very large files.


Can I install Intel Rapid Storage Technology in Windows 7 ? This is required ?

Don't you have 5 year warranty on Intel SSD's?

Sata 3 is compatible with a sata 2 controller. The only problem is that max data rate of sata 2 is 375 megabytes per second, and most new SSDs are beyond 500mbps so your controller will be restricting performance.
