So I have a gigabyte GA-x58A-UD3R and I have being toying with the idea of stepping up to the SSD realm. However I have read many issues people have using the marvel controller on this board. I know this board was advertised as a sata 3.0 board but from what I have read your best off using the intel ports on this board which are only sata 2.0 speeds(as I understand it). I am primarily a gamer and I am looking for gains in ToR loading levels etc.
-More or less wondering if other people have tackled this problem with this board?(advice please!)
-what issues can I run into slaving my WD caviar black to an SSD.
-Opinion on crucial M4 128gig vs OCZ vertex 3 120gig.
-Lastly what gains am I going to see over my old 7200 disk drive going to a sata 2.0 drive. (Is it worth it?)
