Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SATA 3 6Gb/s SSD with Asus P6TD Deluxe Motherboard

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm considering getting this solid state drive for my pc because its on sale at a very low price. Would my 3gb/s sata mobo affect the speed of the ssd much, and is it worth buying in my case? I was going to reinstall windows on it, and use it for a few games and programs.

A ssd is one of the best pc purchases you can make. Since it is the slowest thing in your pc. It will more then pay for itself in the long run. Your ssd speed will be cut roughly in half on reads and writes. But it will still be crazy fast. Thanks

No, there is hardly any real world difference to the consumer btw a SSD on a SATA 2 vs SATA 3 connection.

Getting a SSD over a HDD is worth it to me.

Thanks for the reply. Would it be better for me to get a sata 3gb/s ssd over the 6gb/s one?

Which SATA 3Gb/s SSD? Usually the newer SSDs are SATA 6Gb/s while older ones are SATA 3Gb/s.

No not at all. Just get the sata6 one. You will not honestly notice the speed difference. Unless you are running a ssd benchmark. Buy it and install your os and have fun. Thanks
