I have just purchased a Force GT SATA 3 120Gb from ebay

My PC Config is ...
Mobo: GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0
CPU: Intel i7 930 (Overclocked to 4.0Ghz)
RAM: Crucial 2gb x 3 DDR3 1600mhz
HDDs: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB, Seagates ITB,500MB, 500MB
Power: Corsair 850W
Graphics: Zotac GeForce GTX 460 AMP on PCI-E first slot

No Raid configured ... and this is my first SSD.

Can anybdy suggest if this SSD going to work without any problems on Sata III port of the motherboard OR I will have to buy a separate card like Highpoint Rocket 620 ? ....

Are the Sata PCIe card a better option than onboard Marvell port ....... I read somewhere on other forum that the newage SSD's like Corsair Force GT should be used with PCIe Card like Highpoint Rocket 620 if u need full read/write speed instead of using onboard Marvell...
What I dont understand is these Highpoint Card are also using same Marvell 88SE9128 controller as the motherboard's onboard Marvell controller ... then why is the difference?

Plz dont suggest me to choose sata II port for it...

Marvell sata 3 port ok on this motherboard.
same marvell controllers make no obvious difference.
