My motherboard doesn't support AHCI, is IDE mode + SATA 2 much slower for new SDD/HDD/SSHD?

My motherboard is Intel DG41TY and it does not support AHCI. How much would IDE mode + SATA 2 be slower comparing to ideal case AHCI+SATA 3? If it is much slower for SDD case, then would it be a good idea for me to get SSHDsince it is little bit more expensive than HDD but still can give me a good speed improvement even though not as good as SDD?

SATA II is perfectly sufficient for HDD. for an SSD, you'll bottle neck it to HDD speeds, thus making buying an SSD completely pointless.
