Sorry im a Aussie so prices Prob F'd up
Vertex 3 will be cheaper than a revodrive x2 and faster than a revodrive, plus it will support trim.

The last post was just about booting with the PCI-E SSD and Windows.I think the RevoDrives are expensive too.

Hey guys/gals.
I'm new to this and actually pretty noobish when it come to computer gear and overclocking.

I have an issue and wanted some advice.

I just bought an OCZ Agility 3 120gb, when I got it home I realized I only have a SATA II contention which is capping my speeds. (I have a Gigabyte p55 u3p)

I want to get a PCIe card that will allow me to overcome this issue and get the performance others are getting which is around the 320mb mark:
Mine seems to be capping (bottle Necking) at around 250 (I used HD Tune Pro for the testing).

I want to know any good cards I can get:
Will the: ASUS U3S6 USB 3.0/SATA 3 6Gbps PCIE Card card work?
I don't have USB 3 so seems like a great bargain, but I'm not sure that it is compatible.
I have search everywhere and I can't find any new information:
http://www.testfreaks.com/blog/revie...bps-pcie-card/

Said there were speed issues with the card, but Did not mention the SATA III which is my main concern. All the reviews seem so old, its hard to know if it will work with the Agility 3 120gb.
I mean I don't want to buy a card if it will not give me the boost I need, or if it is not compatible with my Motherboard.

Also as the guy mentioned before, Is there any issues with booting a SDD from a PCIe slot? This will be my primary HDD, and I don't want the PCIe card to ruin my SDD.

Is the ASRock SATA III PCIe Card [AR-SATA3-CARD]
Any good? Will this work?

I have read a few comments from people saying that the card was unreliable and/or had a high fail rate. Is that true?
Are there any other cards out there?
I am pretty willing to pay up to about $100 for a card that will provide me a solution to this issue.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Note that PCI-E 1x slots have less bandwidth than a single SATA 3.0 port. PCI-E rev 1.1 slots, like those attached to the ICH10R on your X58 board, are much slower.

The best option for your particular board, if you want to take full advantage of SATA 3.0, would to get a PCI-E 4x or 8x controller card and put it in the bottom 16x slot (PCI-E 2.0, 4x electrical lanes).

However, the advantage is small, and the cost is significant. You may well be better off using the SATA 2.0 ports on the ICH10R. Any card that will be significantly faster will cost you 150-200 dollars.

If I were you, instead of spending $100 for a quick fix, I'd get another card for R0 on ICH10R. You'll get roughly the same performance that way, along with more space and more futureproofing; by the time you're ready to buy a motherboard with Sata III support, it'd likely have one of the new controllers coming out, allowing practical R0 and TRIM support.

You should use SATA II port on your motherboard. Full stop.

You will lose TRIM with any controller other than native Intel one. You will overpay for barely noticeable difference and just create headache for yourself.

I apologies for my inexperience but what is: R0 on ICH10R
