Wrong SSD for my MOBO...trying to find a replacement Tags: SSD Support Crucial Storage Product Last response: July 15, 2011 10:47 PM in Storage Share undr458 July 14, 2011 12:51:18 AM Hello! I'm in the market for an SSD, and my search keeps leading me to this one from crucial http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . My MOBO, on the other hand, can only support 3GB/sec speeds, which leads me to believe that I would be wasting my money on this one as I can't utilize the 6GB/sec speeds. MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Is there a comparable ssd that is more fitting for my MOBO? I'm not the most confident when reading the specs on these so I'm wanting to make sure I make the right choice.
