Question: Vertex 3 Pro /w only SATAII

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm eyeing my first SSD purchase and I've got my eye on the Vertex 3 Pro. However, my Mobo is only SATAII. On the other hand, I'm not buying the SSD for file transfer speeds, I'm buying it for IOPS.

Vertex 3 Pro:
550MB/s Read
525MB/s Write
75K IOPS 4K Random Write

Question: would using this drive through SATAII bottleneck the IOPS?

The drive will not be running to it's full potential no.. But it will run, and still be damn fast.
But a Sata 3 Expansion card is cheap.. So if you wanted to do that down the road

I haven't read much into the sata cards but I thought the overall consensus is that they're not good for the most part?

If the price for the SATAIII version over the older SATAII isn't that much higher, then why not just get the SATAIII for whenever you upgrade your motherboard to something that has SATAIII down the line?

My board is only SATAII but I'm still waiting to see pricing on the next-gen SSDs myself.
