That's OK, so are we - confused that is.
??? and the motherboard is.
Is Sata port an Intel controlled sata port, is it sata II, or SATA III?
gsata = Gigabyte sata port ?? and again is it sata II or III?

And the SSD is ??????

In general a Sata III SSD performs best on a Intel SATA III port.
Could elaborate further, but as the old saying goes, I'd be Pis^&^% in the wind.

May I assume you have a Gigabyte motherboard? That's the only brand I have run across that uses the term GSATA.

The Gigabyte GSATA ports use a JMicron controller on the motherboard. Their performance is slightly lower than the other SATA ports using an Intel controller. There is a possibility some users might experience a driver issue when using the GSATA port with a modern ssd.

I recommend that you do not use the GSATA ports. Instead use one of the Intel ports. Don't forget to check for driver updates too.

The Intel ICH10R is the one you want to use. It will work well with the Crucial ssd.
