Mine is rated @ 300MBs but performs @ 110MBs or thereabouts.

Thanks for the tute; I have never really delved into this at this level as I am not a gamer nor am I an IT Pro. Just an Enthusiast with a few machines that I have put together over the years. This one which I'm using now had its debut on or about April 1st. Put it together this past winter.

Mechanocal hard drives are not physically capable of doing the speeds they are rated at. What they are rated at is the speed that the port they are connected to is capable of producing - in a lab under perfect conditions. An SSD on the other hand usually are at least capable of doing real close to their speeds. My Intel 80 GB drive is rated at 275 read/ 75 write, here is the ATTO test on that.

Compare that to either your ATTO or mine. The SSD is a sata 3GB/s just like yours is.

I just took a trip over to newegg to see what a 1 terabyte ssd HD would cost.

YIKES! $4,400.00US

I guess I'll stick to my crappy old Mechanicals for a while.

I appreciate the enlightenment and I repped you for it.

Thanks again,

Intend to install WIN 8 somewhere on this machine sometime soon so I'll see you on the W8 boards sometime soon.

I'm registered on the win8 board. But, you don't need a 1 TB SSD. You can run your OS from a 60GB SSD if you arrange it right. Just put the OS and apps on the SSD and your user files on the regular HD. I only have about 20GB on my SSD, and it works real well. Ask around on these forums, there a lot of people here that use SSDs and are very good at setting it up right. It will really make a difference. The best upgrade you can do to a computer, and you can do it for $200 or less. And thanks for the rep. If I can help, just let me know.

That's what they are rated at. It isn't what you get. Here is my Western digital Black WD1002FAEX tated at 6 GB/s

I thought I would post the results of a spinning HDD as a compartson to the SSD;s performance scores to show how much better SSD's are.

Great numbers. Just need a 7.9 on the CPU. Wait, I don't remember ever seeing a 7.9 CPU. (except once, but they were pouring liquid nitrogen in it)

Great build, you never know the might come up with a chemically cold flowing water cooling system that can compete with a liquid nitrogen botched up cooler!
