I recently recieved free a complete computer minus HD. It has a D856perl mobo. I am not really in the position to build a whole new computer, but this free one will still be better than the old Dell I'm currently on. All I really need is a HD. Would there be any benifit in getting a SSD drive (if it will work) or should I just save the extra cash for a SATA 1.5Gb/s or SATA 3.0 drive? Other than that I was going to put some more Memory in it.

    I should add that I know SSD drives are better, but considering this is an older 1.5 SATA board, will it benifit still? Or will it not see the performance gains enough to justify the extra cost?

    Conder the price.   If you get a SSD just large enough for the boot 40g or 60g and a larger non ssd drive for you storage, it might be woth your time and money.  A intel 330 60g now costs about $65 at newegg.

     

    I am on here just to find out if the

    Intel 330 Series Maple Crest  SSDSC2CT060A3K5 2.5" 60GB SATA III  MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

     

    will work in a intel 875 chipset (asus p4c800 deluxe mama board) with two built in sata 1.5 ports.  I did have an 80g ssd 3.0 on this computer but sent it back. It did work but was not excited about the speed cause my pipe is 1.5.   But not I may have to rebuild the os again and was looking at  the price of the SSD and might buy one just for the boot.   The SSD does load up on a rebuild with a nice speed.  However, if you want a speedy computer,  you need to upgrade to a sandybridge that can match the sata 6.0 speeds.

    Why is everyone afraid to answer the original question.

     

    Is the intel 330 SSD compitable with a  sata 1.5  mama board.
