What is the speed of the motherboard on a dell xps 435mt

Pre-formatted?OEM Healthy Hrimary Partition of 63 GB + OS C: using 85 GB of space after upgrading OS from Vista to Ultimate 7 on Dell Studio XPS 435MT i7 920 with 2.67 Ghz with 8 logical processors but still Quad core. I am wondering if I can upgrade to an SATA SSD. The current HDD is a Seagate ST3750528AS ATA Device (750 GB) at 7200 RPM. I'm not sure of read/write speed or speed capacity of the Seagate motherboard. Not sure of capacity read /write speeds on install of an SSD upgrade and, would it even be worthwhile? Possible upgrade: 128GB Crucial m4 2.5" SSD with Data Transfer Kit
•Sustained Sequential Read: Up to 500 MB/s(SATA 6Gb/s)
•Sustained Sequential Write: Up to 175 MB/s(SATA 6Gb/s)
•4KB Random Read: Up to 45,000 IOPS
•4KB Random Write: Up to 35,000 IOPS

    The SSD will work. The read times will increase, but ssd is still fairly slow for write. This is why they are generally used for operating systems and everything else can go on standard spin drives.

    I meant to say it was a Dell motherboard, after re=reading my post. I was told I had a limit on read/write speed because of my motherboard. It was suggested that 485 MB/s would be the maximum. Will the SSD install disc have a maximum MB/s "analyzer", I definitely don't want to burn up my mobo.
