If you buy a very high-end SSD that has a transfer rate in excess of around 300MB/sec, you probably want to look for a motherboard that has 6.0Gbit/sec SATA ports. foscooter a b V Motherboard a c 97 G Storage July 2, 2010 2:36:11 AM ^+1 Agree. But get a Intel based mobo. ACHI and TRIM are only supported on Intel boards, as they are Intel "products." Try the motherboard that they choose for the latest System Builder Marathon, $2000.00 build, its a Tom's Hardware Recommended Buy: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R. If you're gonna get a SSD, get a large fast HDD too, for data/media. Only get a SSD large enough for the OS and Programs you want, and put (for example) My Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads, and Gaming files on the HDD. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
