Hey’ Im thinking about upgrading my HDD to a SSD, but im not quite sure if it worth it. Also my motherboard only suppport 3.0GB/s, I don’t know if I should buy a new motherboard to get the 6.0GB/s and if it’s worth the money. I would love to hear some opinions Note: I do not OC anymore; I simply don’t have the time and can’t be bothered.
PC specs Asus Rampage 2 extreme x58 crossfire&sli Intel 960 3.2GHz (Zalman CNPS 10x on top of it) Corsair dominator-gt 6GB ddr3 2000MHz XFX 6970 2GB 850W psu (Think it’s a NorthQ) And im using some random 1TB HD atm
3GB/s or 6GB/s makes no difference. The seek time is the point. Go for the SSD.
Its not like you have to pick one or the other. In terms of price: A 256gb SSD = 120gb SSD + 500gb/1tb HDD
the answer is YES! even if you are using sata2. with sata2 you wont be taking full advantage of a new ssd but a ssd on sata2 is still a huge improvement over a regular hdd. watch the video below. it perfectly illustrates why you want a ssd.
