Buying my first SSD soon, have a few questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am planning to buy an Intel 520 series 240GB SSD when I get my next paycheck and I have a few questions.

First I want to take the hard drive I have now and set it up as a mount point on the C:\Users directory, this way all my downloads, documents, etc. will be placed directly on the mechanical HD and I will not have to move them manually. Will this impact the performance of the SSD?

My motherboard only has SATA 2, will this have a noticeable impact on performance?

1) I don't think it affect performance. That's like saying "Would putting files on my SSD cause performance drop?" No. It won't. That's what SSDs are for..
2) You will not visually notice any impact on performance
