Your card maybe PCIeX1 or X2. If you want the high performance you have to get the new PC, and if you don't mind the benchmark you will be fine. You don't notice the difference between SATAII and SATAIII in real usage. theredi October 31, 2012 6:27:02 PM thanks cin19 ive been banging my head on the wall over this. i guess its upgrade time again. hopefully this thread will help others.
