Hy. I'm trying to improve my overall performance and thought an intel SSD should be a good choice.. decided on 330 series
but my main worry is related to compatibility issues that could appear with my old 775 socket mobo (Asus P5ND2-SLI
) which doesn't have AHCI and other stuff required.
Should I buy an SSD with this config. or wait for a new platform?
Any SSD is compatible with any desktop *as long as it supports SATA* - you could add an SSD to a Socket *478* motherboard if you wanted (as long as it had an ICH5R southbridge).
The holdback will be SATA performance limits of the chipset.
That said, if the *chipsert* is the bottleneck, performance will increase as you upgrade motherboards.
