I was thinking about getting a SSD to speed up scene transitions and texture loading for my MMO games.
I know a Sata II controller is backwards compatible with a Sata III device.. I was curious about the performance drop, I'm not worried about transferring data along the network, or to other hard drives, but interested in gaming performance.
This hard drive should work with this motherboard, with out a huge hit on the speed of the drive correct?
Even on SATA II ports SSD's are still beasts.
For what you want to do i doubt going from a SATA II port to a SATAIII port will make any difference.
Not 100% sure on this but the only difference between the two ports would be the sequential read/write speeds, but really who has another device that you can copy files to at 300+MB/s, besides another ssd.
