Difference between 3gb/s and 6gb/s Tags: Motherboards Asus SATA Last response: April 22, 2010 1:57 PM in Motherboards Share kingneptune117 April 22, 2010 4:05:58 AM Is there really that big of a difference (those speeds are SATA speeds I saw on specs of some ASUS mobos). There is this asus mobo for like 140 dollars and another one for like 120, the difference is the 3gb/s and 6gb/s. Will it make that big of a difference? Is it worth saving 20 bucks to go with 3gb/s mobo?
