  1. my system specs are

    intel i5-3570k
    intel DZ75ML-45K mobo
    seagate barracuda 1TB 7200rpm
    corsair vengeance 8gb 1600mhz ram
    GPU gigabyte gtx 760 2gb
    and I am planning to buy SSD
    my purpose of buying SSD is
    1)fast boot up
    2)better gaming performance
    3)overall fast performance of the system w.r.t hard disk
    so can I use SSD ON DZ75ML-45K mobo...?

    why I asked this question is that they are telling that Z75 series express chipset motherboard does not support "INTEL SMART RESPONSE TECHNOLOGY" & this is associated w.r.t SSD caching. And the thing is that I don't knw about SSD caching and that intel smart response technology as well, what are the benefits of "INTEL SMART RESPONSE TECHNOLOGY"? or SSD caching? So plz explain me about that...?
    eagerly waiting for ur reply...:(
    plz reply...
    thanks in advance...:)

    You can easily pop in a SATA SSD to use as a standalone. Intel SRT is software/firmware that allows for you to set up a caching SSD. I think you should just get a SSD and use it as the primary disk (OS + games) and just put large files on the HDD.

    Your CPU supports SRT according to Intel: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/chipsets/mainstream-chipsets/z75-express-chipset.html.

    Just a note: SSDs do not increase game performance, they really just decrease load times.
