  1. Looks like I might be stuck with SATA II at my price point.
  2. This would be your best drive, though doesn't leave much room outside of the OS and a few applications as a Boot Drive.

  3. I don't think any SSD on the market right now fully saturates SATA II?
  4. Vertex 2 does with easily compressed data.
  5. Yeah and 2 + 2 = 5 for large values of 2. :P

    An infrequent operation does not count as saturating the channel.
  6. thud2 - Is there any chance you can pay a little more for a ssd?

    If you are patient and shop around on a daily basis you might even be able to find it for $179.99.

    considering that much of an OS volumes data is very easily compressed, I'd hardly call it "infrequent". This is where Sandforce controllers regain much of what is lost with incompressible data.
