Re: Looking to upgrade to an SSD, and more RAM
The Samsung 830 is an excellent choice, and is by far, the best upgrade bang for your buck. As you said, it will be limited to a maximum of 300 mb/s because of your board's SATA II support.
You do however, confuse me on the memory??? Your X58 chip set requires triple channel memory. Meaning you need 3 sticks of ram for optimal performance, yet you are buying a 2 stick set?????
Also, as a side note, 6GB of memory is more than enough for most anything you'll need to do. Even if you're current memory is rated for 1333MHz, and you're going for 12GB, at 1866MHz, it's very unlikely you notice any difference in application performance, except for benchmarking apps.
If you really want more memory, go for 3x4GB sticks of Vengeance @ 1600Mhz.
