More about will mobo support
  1. Yes, it has sata ports.
  2. Yes, if you have available SATA ports you can use an SSD in there, no problem
  3. Thanks for quick replay.

    But I know that SSDs are SATA3 6Gb/s

    And I checked the spec of my mobo, on the storage tab.
    http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/M4A785M/#specifications

    Southbridge
    1 xUltraDMA 133/100/66
    6 xSATA 3 Gb/s ports Support RAID 0,1,10,JBOD

    So my mobo only support up to 3Gb/s? does it effect any performance if I get a 6Gb/s SSD connect it into a 3Gb/s port?
  4. Not all SSD's are SATA III not that it matters, if you get a SATA III SSD, you'll simply be limited to SATA II speeds, everything else will be the same.
  5. It just supports up to up to 3Gb/s, like said above, you'll run at sata II speeds, so it wil affect the performance of the ssd, if it's a really fast one(under heavy loads), but still it's better that not having one, it won't degrade that much.
