I have a hard drive that appears to be failing. It is a normal SATA based hard disk that I am looking to replace with a Solid State Drive but I have a few questions.
I have a motherboard that is a few years old. It is an ASUS Rampage Formula. I can't find my old manual but I think it is a SATA 3gbps? Is that SATA 2?
It seems that all of the SSD that are on newegg are 2.5". I believe my case only has slots for 3.5" drives. Do they make something that I could put in a 2.5" drive into a 3.5" slot? Any recommendations on that?
If I buy a SATA 3 drive but my motherboard is only SATA 2, will it still work? Does it just "downgrade" the speed to the one below?
