Windows 7: Why does my SSD suck?

Here's a speed test of my SSD - you will probably get these results when you upgrade.

The latest system I built for a client had a very nice, top of the line Sony SSD. I tweaked it and tweaked it because I wanted him to be blown away when he got it.

The speeds I got on it were around the 5500 read range. Were the highest speeds I'd ever seen not on a server. That right there, your 6045, is awesome!

BTW, run HDTune and post your results. I'd love to see what it says about your drive.

I'll do that when I get home.

Can"t wait until you upgrade and we'll have speed contests!

I've been thinking about getting a new one lately, just for the sad fact that I don't have USB 3.0 support. My price range is around $80...I don't think there's a reason to go any higher than that. There's some very nice ASUS and Gigabyte boards that will be very, very good.

I definitely don't need bleeding edge.

The problem with "upgrading" to a new motherboard is that is considered a new computer for software licensing purposes and when it comes to OEM software, like most Windows licenses. So unless you bought a full retail Windows license, and the vast majority of users don't, you would need to buy a new Windows license with a new board.

You could consider adding a PCIe to USB3.0 adapter.

I have plenty of MACs and VLKs.

You can see any specs by clicking "My system specs" at bottom of User's name.

My board is the Asus P8Z77-P

I don't know where you can get a good board for $80.00.

Mine costs $300.00.

Since the MOBO is the heart of your system, maybe wait and save up for a good one.

I'm sure you purchased your W7 OS and you'll have no trouble installing on a new board.

Here are the tests you requested.

Keep in mind, the higher scores are from the 250 Samsung 840 Pro.

The lower ones ( on laptop) are 128 Samsung 830.

There are plenty of boards in the $80-$100 range...plenty. If I wanted to even go to $120 I could get a good one, too.

I've always tried to shop smart, not just pick the most expensive item on the list and throw money at it in order to say I have the most bleeding edge, top of the line piece of equipment on the market.

I have only had one legitimate response. The rest has been trolls sending me links to click under some bs guise to confirm if it's the same product they're looking for. Or they ask for other info that they don't need to make a purchase. Man it's really aggravating.
