I hope linking to another forum is allowed by the way.
it has a link to bios compilations and mentions ssd compatibility, but its stricly unofficial as far as I can tell

This is very interesting, thanks. I'm going to take a look.

Edit. Some are saying that this board is compatible, other are saying that they have problems with certain SSD's etc. It's kinda messy frown.gif

I've got an ultra-portable with a Core 2 Duo SU7300 1.3GHz CPU (45nm) and upgrading to an SSD made quite an improvement in performance and overall responsiveness of the system. If the HDD is already bottlenecking such a low-clocked Core 2, then how much more for a Q6600?

If compatibility is a concern, though, you might want to look into older used/refurbished Intel X25-M G2's. I see some pretty good deals on those on occasion.

....the other piece is that whenever you upgrade the machine, the SSD can move with you.
