Q. visitor asked, Hey Beau, so, my husband build a desktop computer from parts, and he has been talking about wanting a SSD to get things to run faster. I want to get him one for christmas, but I am a little lost.. If possible, I would like to stay around $150.00. Alright. So with that, is SATA III a pretty standard type of connection?

What are you thinking of spending?

Beau L.
You cant go wrong with any of these honestly.
Very amazing and durable.
Basicall the top of the top right now.
I think the 250gb version for 109.99 would be great.
Alright. So with that, is SATA III a pretty standard type of connection?
Beau L.
Yes it is.
Is he building a whole new computer?
If so it should support sata lll
No, he is just looking to upgrade his current one
I have only a basic understanding, but I know he bought a new motherboard within the year, and I think something else
Beau L.
Well if he bought it within a year it will work just fine.
Excellent!
thank you so much for your help
Beau L.
Awesome! Yes.
It is pretty standard these days.
especially the last couple years.
that is so cool. I know he has loved building his own PC, and has made his pretty crazy for gaming I am glad things are getting more uniform so its easier for me to surprise him with cooler toys
