    It seems that ssd needs ahci mode
    To work properly
    I have the idea of putting a ssd on an old Dell Dimension 5150 / E510
    For a friend
    I am sure that the performance will increase
    The problem is that it has no option ahci in the bios
    Only has sata or raid
    Someone of you has tried ssd without ahci?
    And therefore without trim?
    Are these functions necessary?
    I have read people who have done it
    And the answers are contradictory
    Can you tell me if it's worth it?
    Under their proven experience in a similar case.
    Thank you
    I hope they help me

    Here's a really decent Guide on SSD's:
    -- Taken from the "" Website.

    Here's some information concerning using the TRIM Command on the SSD, it is only available in Windows 7; Windows Server 2008 R2; and Linux--according to the following article: Now this article was written in 2014, so there might be newer data available, but it's a good start.

    Thanks for your reply BC2 Tweak
    But I already read a lot on the internet on the subject
    my question is:
    Has anyone tried a ssd with the problems I detail?
    Is so necessary trim and ahci mode?
    How does it work for you who have tried it?
