Question about how SSD Drives

I recently installed a SSD drive for my friends computer. It was a intel based SSD drive i connected using the Sata Ports on his mother board.

I remember it was listed at 100MB Read and Write which to me was great.

How ever how come I see this and other drives like it that are 120gb SSD drives with 280mb read and write?

Do these types of cards require a certain SSD card installed to get those speeds? Or do I connect through the SATA port as well?

My computer I want to do this install on is about 1 and a haf years old now. Just wanted to double check before I spend cash on this.

Thank You!

Most SSDs are either SATA or PCI Express.

Also, yeah... 100MB isnt that much, especially since intel ones are usually great performing :eek:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
