Now.

now = not wise


the current implemention of SATA 3.0 doesn't reach the full potential of SATA 3.0 performance wise most of these Marvell SATA 3.0 controllers at most will reach something like SATA 2.5 performance level. limitation of current chipsets.

if you want proper SATA3, USB3, wait for new chipsets that support them

And by that point the SSD's will come down in price and harness the SATA3 speeds :captnkill:

Does that mean add-on cards will be pointless?

Completely depends what chip the add on card uses. Usually Intel/AMD controllers are the best when it comes to on motherboard controllers, for add on cards there is usually a large price range so it depend on how much you pay.

intel and amd currently have no controllers availabe on the market.

Talking in general going off results from past controllers for SATA2/USB2.0 etc. Not much to compare to as far as SATA3/USB3 is concerned, but as you said before, in all likliness the current Marvell solutions will be surpassed once Intel/AMD release their new chipsets.

Built my friends computer last night with a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3. He wanted to bite the bullet and get the build over. Just won't tell him about the full potential.

Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3
Core i5 750
4gb pc1600
9800gtx+ / will become physx after next gen
Antec P193

one more XP user down the drain :)
