Okay, planning on getting a Crucial C300 128 GB SSD soon. There's a problem, though. I really want to run it in 6 gb SATA III (all reviews show a performance advantage when doing so) but I don't have a SATA III port (and I'm fairly sure my next compy won't - I'd explain why, but it'd take too long). So, I saw this ASUS board and thought I could add it to my system. It's PCI-E 4x.
My current setup:
C2D E6400 @ 2.93
3 GB DDR2-800
8800 GTS 512
1. Can I add this ASUS board to my system?
2. Will adding this board cause my graphics card PCI-E slot to downgrade to 8x? Will that affect its performance?
3. Can I boot from a drive that's connected to the add-in board?
Thanks for any help.
