I am thinking of buying a SSD drive but have a few questions

1. Is the Corsair 120GB Force 3 SSD CSSD-F120GB3-BK a good choice?

2. Is this compatible with my Asus P5K-E motherboard?

3. My motherboard doesn't have SATA 3, since its a few years old. Can you buy a plugin board so it has this or does it have to be built into the motherboard?

Thanks,

Jon

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes, but you don't have to since sata 3 is compatible with sata 2 board

Thanks! Is there much difference in speed between SATA 2 and 3? I think the SSD drive I speak about is 6gb/s and it gets restricted to 3gb/s with SATA 2, is that right?
