    Upgrading my Vertex 2 90GB Sata2 to a Corsair Force 3 240GB Sata3 SSD (275MB/s vs 550MB/s) has anyone gone from an (slightly) older Sata2 SSD to a newer Sata3 one and if so is the difference in boot and load times noticeable?

    I have a SATA III drive in a SATA II motherboard Boots in 44 sec

    Then I also have have a SATA III drive in a SATA III Board that boots in 19 Sec

    I would say its noticeable. But as far as after that no I cant really tell the diff

    Many people report speeds when they have a clean windows and little more installed. Install all your software apps and hardware booting panels, plug your hunderds of USB devices in and come back!

    I have tons of stuff and I boot in only 35 secs from SSD. LOL

    FIxed!;)

    A little difference in test results, not really anything I would say is life changing.
    But, then again, my brain has slowed with age... so it could be a result of that making it seem quicker.
