I am currently using a Crucial M4 as my OS drive on a basic H55 motherboard with SATA II ports.
I have two connundrums:
1 - my ports are only sata II so im not getting the full performance of the drive
2 - im running short on sata ports for data drives, even 1 more sata port would buy me a lot of time
So I was thinking of getting a cheap 6Gbps 2xSATA PCI-e expansion card, moving the SSD over to it, and that would have the secondary effect of freeing up at least one more SATA port on my mobo for another data drive. Two birds with one stone.
Is this a good/bad idea?
I found some cards in the £20-30 range on Amazon.co.uk, from Startech, Asus and Syba.
