Your 480 blocks will not fit. You'll need to purchase the 580 blocks, unfortunately. As for SSDs, OCZ Vertex 3 ( i think its 3) is 6Gb/Sec.

i might end up just getting a SR2 Setup with 2 6 core xeons and starting fresh.

at least then i can tweak it and it wont affect my work flow.

ok say ive got 5000GBP to spend could someone build me a list of stuff for a SR2 Build all on water.

580s best SSDs high GB storage not needed as ive got a Netapp Filer on my Lan.

i want Max RAM but i would like the get those 6 cores to 4Ghz if thats possible

i had a C300 the other day a co worker lent me. it was a 60gb or 64.

the read was good like 350 but the write speed was terrible like 70mb/s

no where fast enough for dropping 6GB 3d files around

The 256gb versions write a lot faster than the 64gb
