sorry for the delay.. i forgot i posted about this...
so, i would definitely get 120gb or higher.
could you explain the "Z68" you are talking about? i checked the gigabyte website and didnt see it mentioned. so im guessing i dont have it.
can I set the ssd as a scratch drive if photoshop itself is on there? i thought it only worked if it were on a different drive?
this is also from the gigabyte website
6 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (SATA2_0, SATA2_1, SATA2_2, SATA2_3, SATA2_4, SATA2_5) supporting up to 6 SATA 3Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10
Marvell 9128 chip:
2 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (GSATA3_6, GSATA3_7) supporting up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0 and RAID 1
- SATA3 RAID 0 4x and SATA3 2x performance are maximum theoretical values. Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
- SATA3 SSDs are not recommended for use in RAID 0 mode on Marvell SE9128 ports."
so, that would mean, yes. it supports SATA3 right? just want to make sure.
do you guys recommend any drive in particular.. i've heard mushkin is the way to go (or intel) but those are a little out of my range. I've read certain OCZs crash after a couple months. But ive also heard that the ocz vertex 3 are decent. and crucial m4 are good too right?
is the rule of thumb still $1/GB is a good price?
thanks again for the help!
