how much of an increase will I see switching to Sata 1 or 2
you won't see any difference, Hard drives are slow from the beginning to even fill SATA 2 speeds.

You won't get the full speeds on your motherboard, it doesn't support native SATA 3 6Gb/s by intel.
I'd suggest you try both the Marvell SATA 3 and Intel SATA 2 and see which gives best results. I have X58 System and I plugged my SSD in the Intel SATA 2 which gave better results than the Marvell's SATA 3 6Gb/s



OP Crucial M4 has the best reliability in the SSD Market along with some other drives, great choice, Good luck thumb.gif
