So I have a motherboard with PCI-Express v2 and Sata 300 built in.
I'd like to buy a new SSD - Samsung 840 Pro to replace my old OCZ Vertex 2
I have a spare Sata 600 controller (Startech PCI-E x1)
What's the theoretical performance I'll get if I plug the new SSD into it ?
PCI-E x1 is 500MB/s
SATA 600 is 600MB/s
I realise the new SSD will be restricted by my set up, but by how much ? Will it get near to the 500MB/s the PCI-E socket offers? I realise this is all a bit theoretical but I'm curious to know, before buying the Samsung.
