Product literature does show it as Sata 1.5 backward compatible.... the question I have is... I current have a motherboard AMD 3200+, that runs at 2000 gh, ... putting this little SSD the intel x25-v on it may take it from 20 miles an hour to 150 mph...

or... with the new SB I7 2600k, and the SATA III WD 640 mentioned above... it may be like going from 115 mph to 175 mph...

Are these analogies correct?
Or an I confused as to which.... help please... Kune

Kinda confused as to what you are asking. Yes the SSD will work on a SATA 1 or 1.5 port. The major benefit to using a SSD are the almost nil access times. Throughput will suffer due to the slower controller speed but not by much honestly.

If I'm understanding you correctly then yes, the drive will perform better on a new machine with a native SATA2 or 3 controller.
