Does this mean that I wont get the full performance out of the ssd? More about : asusp7p55d mobo Dereck47 a c 504 G Storage January 6, 2013 3:00:07 AM 3Gb/s is SATA 2. 6Gb/s is SATA 3. You won't get maximum advertised Read/Write speeds from a SATA 3 SSD with your motherboard but it's definitely still worth buying if you are upgrading from a HDD. Tomchew January 6, 2013 4:03:15 AM So you think I'll still see a major difference in speed even without sata3? I don't really want to purchase a new mobo lol.

Tomchew January 6, 2013 4:39:26 AM Well alrighty then I was thinking of getting the Samsung 840 or the kingston hyperX any suggestions on which is better? And do these come with some kind of brackets to mount or are those separate. Tomchew January 6, 2013 4:49:16 AM Best answer selected by Tomchew. Dereck47 a c 504 G Storage January 6, 2013 4:51:40 AM Go for the Samsung 840. You'll have to check to see if it comes with a bracket or not. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
