Hello this is my motherboard Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L. As i am limited to sata II ports. i read somewhere that a sata III ssd running on a sata II port would run much slower. performance wise would it be smarter to buy the pcie ssd? or to run the sataIII ssd on my motherboard?
pcie ssd i am looking at is the
OCZ RevoDrive 3 Series 120 GB PCI Express 4 GB-s Slim Solid State Drive
sataIII ssd i am looking at is the
SATA3 120.0 INTEL SSD 520 CHERRYVILLE OEM
i am upgrading from a HDD and use my computer mainly for gaming and graphic design.
actually now that i look at my motherboard i dont think the revodrive would work as i only have PCI Express x1 slots and PCI Slots available. i guess im sticking with the intel ssd until a mobo upgrade.
