I am building a new PC. I want to understand how to best choose parts. I have read that I should use the most current intel chipsets controller to best take advantage of the TRIM and AHCI functionality of the current SSDs.
I am confused about the regular SSDs versus the PCIe SSDs. It seems there are new SSDs such as the RevoDrive that use the PCIe interface. If the SSD is PCIe does the motherboard controller still matter?
I have a GTX 480 and I need to purchase everything else. I need a motherboard, powersupply, SSD, memory, and case. The video card was a gift so that I can build a new gaming rig.
So... I guess to clarify. Can someone explain the difference between the new PCIe SSDs and the SATA SSDs. If there is a difference... does the motherboard chipset still matter?
