Just bought a new OCZ SSD, Wanting to get an Intel Chipset MB

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have the nforce 750i chipset, which does not support AHCI and have read both good and bad outcomes of installing an SSD on these old Nforce Chipsets.

I would like to sell my 750i SLI FTW, and get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128447

With my current 45nm E6500, will there be any issues running it on that board? I just think getting a board with AHCI support is going to be better than "dealing" with my current Nvidia chipset.

That board will run an E6500 just fine. It's a good overclocker too, if I remember correctly. And AHCI is pretty much a must for an SSD, or you'll be losing out on the performance you paid so much for!

Thats exactly how I feel, I want the SSD running at optimal speed...

Some people have posted in the SSD forum to my thread saying its just fine in IDE, but I find it unacceptable. might as well spend 50 on a MB that runs it in the right way.

Thanks for the response.

Well My 750I sold fast on Ebay. So i was about to pull the trigger on the Gigabyte motherboard but someone said it doesn't support RAID, anyone know if this is true?

And also, if anyone knows of a better/cheaper option I'd appreciate it.

I need ddr2, LGA 775 socket, ATX form with a solid chipset to run my new OCZ Agility 2 SSD. I have been ignoring the Micro ATX MBs but there sure are a lot of them, is that the new standard? i have a huge case...
