Splurge on an SSD drive....that's really the only thing that will really increase your HD score. My Intel X25-M Gen 2 got a 7.5

or invest in sata3 hardware and wait for sata3 ssd'd for the ultimate in performance

oh and of course sata3 is completely backward compatible with 1/2 and also uses the same cable setup as sata1/2.

You can sit around and wait forever, or just in and get the best performance possible right now until this other hardware comes out.

its already out. but it will be a while until other vendors begin to migrate as always. i think the seagate xt sata3 will be close to the ssd's (except the access time of course, as its still a mechanical drive) but if you get hold of a sata3 m/board, your already half way there.

The new Seagate drive is rated at a sustained 138MB/s. That's a little bit faster than a Velociraptor, but my Intel X25-M Gen 2 is rated at 250MB/s. That's almost 2x the performance of the new Seagate drive, and it has 0.09MB access time...which really makes these SSD's shine.

5.9 here.

I'm not sure why its so low... My primary drive is a WD raptor 140gb. To my knowledge there isn't much that's any faster.

Hey Bloke, do you know of other mobos that support SATA 3.0, this is the only one I've found so far.

Asusí P6X58 Premium motherboard comes with SATA 3.0 (6Gbps) support

Single HDD maxes out at 5.9
Earlier post Raid 0 HDD at 6.2

Basically if you want a better score upgrade to SSD. But if you are happy with the performance now you might want to wait a while for prices to come down as SSD's are still rather pricey per GB.
