Should I install SSD SATA3 on SATA2 motherboard?
I have been given a voucher ($200) for my local computer store as a birthday present and I want to know if it is worthwhile installing a SATA3 SSD on my Gigabyte PA 55 UD4 motherboard that only supports SATA2?
I won't be upgrading my motherboard for approximately 3 years when I purchase a new computer, so that is not an option. I guess it would future proof the hard drive but is it likely to last three years and more?
Would I notice a big difference between an SSD SATA3 and my Western digital 1 TB Green SATA2 connected to my existing motherboard?
