Hello, i am thinking of getting an SSD sometime soon. but my motherboard is only SATA2. What is a good Motherboard for $100 or under? I have a AMD FX 6100, GTX 770, 1tb HDD, Define R4 case. I was looking at the MSI 970A-G43 AMD, but wanted somebodies opinion. Right now i have a MSI 760GM-P34 FX.
Other than more expansion slots USB 3, since my HDD is Sata3, would it preform faster?
Will all of that said, is it even worth getting a new one?
The speed difference between Sata 2 and Sata 3 is minimal. But if you want a new board:
Forgot to say, i only have 1600MHz Memory
But what is the difference in the 2 boards?
I want to try to save money if possible
The MSi doesn't have have any VRM heatsinks, so if you're overclocking it's going to overheat, if you're not overclocking go for the MSI.
If you are going to buy an upgrade mobo at least get a 'upgrade',and stay away from MSI AM3+ motherboards.
Whats your budget?
