Am looking for 64 or 128 SATA 6Gb SSD for my new motherboard with SDATA III. Noticed Micron RealSSD C300 was compatible, but in the item description, all the SATA descriptions were struck through???..as if to indicate the description was not correct?? Thanks!

The Crucial RealSSD 300 is the same machine, and probably slightly cheaper than the Micron.

Before purchasing, check the SATA3 card you have, if it’s not connected to a PCIe x16 socket, don’t expect full speed from that SSD.
In other words, if its PCIe x1 card, don’t expect full speed. The better SATA3 solutions use a PCIe x4 connector, but these should be fitted to a PCIe x16 socket, connected directly to the North Bridge, or Core i5 750, Core i7 860/870 if you have a P55 chipset.

I’m not sure what the configuration would be if you have AMD.

edit: OK ASUS does have a card out, U3S6 USB 3.0 & SATA 6GB/s PCIe x4 Expansion Card
