I have a Mesh Elite Inspiration 7500 with a P5N-D motherboard. I am considering purchasing an SSD to run the operating system from. Will all current SSDs work with this motherboard? If not, how do I check for compatibility?

As far as I am aware , all SSD`s are backwards compatible on SATA . You just wont get the full benefit of the speed if you put a SATA III SSD on a SATA II connection

That's what I thought. Just wanted to check before spending out over £100! Thank you nickf.
