My System Specs

AHCI enabled

I have two of the three when running Win7, and one of the three when running XP, on the Fujitsu P770 laptop. Guess that will have to do.....

This also means that garbage collection efficiency - it is can be determined should be part of my selection criteria.
Ah! I did not realize the chipset needed to support it as well. Do they make SATA III controllers that you can plug into the PCI/e slot?
