My System Specs

Default OCZ Revodrive 3

Has anyone use any of these PCIe based SSD's? I am really considering purchasing one of these soon as my wifes computer needs an SSD and I am thinking of giving her my m4. Plus I'm hoping these will drop a little in price with the current SSD price trends.

But my question is.... Will I even notice the increase in read/write times or is it not even worth it? I know the cost is quite high but I am thinking 975 mb/s read is AMAZING! That is twice as fast as my m4.

Please save the price/performace comments. I already know it's ridiculous.

Ask AkG, but I asked the same thing and you really need to consider the fact that you need a core i7 to operate the Revo3. Why? If you look carefully at the review you will find that even at idle it is taking a lot of horsepower. So if you are still talking about that mobo from the other thread I don't think is a good idea. Best idea would be to consider a SATA II SSD.
