I am looking to purchase a new SSD (Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)) for my build and was wondering what kind of improvements in load time I'd be looking at over my current 500GB Seagate HDD, I know it's 7600 RPM with a 32MB Cache.
My mobo is Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P and only has SATA II currently and was wondering if this drive would run on it without a hitch.
It obviously depends on other computer resources and graphics card driver delays. Sata 3g/s port will still have substantial read/write gains going from a standard 7200rpm HDD to a SSD. It shaved about 12 seconds off my boot time and file access is fantastic on my laptop which uses a SATAII port.
