  1. Well I have this machine right now as second computer well I have a mechanical drive in motherboard's sata2 port (p6t deluxe v2)well I want to update with an ssd but it doesn't used right by mobo (I mean doesn't use the drive at full speed) so am in dilemma should I buy a sata3 controller (I prefer a raid one to buy two cheap 60gb ssd and raid them) or one of those m2 drives in pcie cards?is any of two solutions workable and of course bootable?

    Thx for your time,

    SSD's most important advantage is low seek time. And SATA3 only raises maximum speed so even with SATA2 SSD is "fast enough" for most systems.
