I was looking to purchase an SSD. I am wanting to know what type of SATA ports my motherboard supports. I have done some searches online. It is an OEM Dell board and I can't seem to find any detailed spec sheets for it. Anyone know where I could look or just happen to know the type whether it has SATA I or SATA II ports (pretty sure it doesn't have sata III).
Manufacturer Dell Inc.
Model 0RY007 (Socket 775)
Chipset Vendor Intel
Chipset Model P35/G33/G31
Chipset Revision A2
Southbridge Vendor Intel
Southbridge Model 82801IR (ICH9R)
If you skip down to pg178 It says I have SATA 1.0 and SATA 2.0.
Do the colors black, blue and white mean anything? Or are they just there for convince?
You also mentioned, "if I get SATA III". That would constitute a new mobo correct?
Do you know why all this information is conflicting? Why would the Chipset support SATA II and the motherboard not? The Chipset is what determines all of the specs, am I right? One part of the users manual, pg 178, says it does support SATA II, but the motherboard layout, pg 109, labels them all as SATA I. So confusing!
