I have an old desktop running Linux, and I would like to put a SSD in as my main drive (replacing the current HDD).
The idea is to speed up the computer by placing the OS and applications in the SSD. I'm looking to buy a 120-250 GB, SATA3 SSD and some type of connector/adapter (like IDE/PATA to SATA) so it works with my current motherboard. Sometime later I will upgrade other parts (motherboard, cpu, ram) or transfer this drive to another computer.
Some of the Hardware being used :
- CPU: AMD ATHLON XP 1900+
- MotherBoard: ASRock K7S41GX
- PSU: Power Supply ATX12V Pentium IV & PFC LC6550
Because this is more of a intermediate upgrade, I would like to spend on the connector (or other solution) as little as possible. It has to make sense from a purchase point of view, otherwise making the full upgrade would be a better choice (And probably this is the only solution in this case).
Thanks for any help!
