How much difference toes sata2.0 make to sata 3.0

I have just bought the corsair force3 240gb ssd.
I use the ex58-ds4 mobo which only runs 2.0sata ports would it be worth upgrading my mobs to
Gigabyte G1.Sniper - LGA1366 Socket

  1. It would remove the bottleneck, but why 1366? 1155 is newer and better!
  2. The upgrade to SATA III from SATA II will not give you a noticeable speed boost under normal usage scenarios.
    You would only really notice the difference if you are running benchmarks, often transfer large files between a pair of SSDs or run data-heavy professional apps.

    Save your money, it is defiantly not worth purchasing another motherboard only for SATA III support.

    Edit:
    As another thought, why do you not just get a SATA III add-on card?
    They are quite inexpensive and will allow you to run your SSD at native SATA III speeds.
