    Dual Bonding 2 Sata 2 Ports

    With regards to the next generation of SATA products running at 6gbps ( SATA 3 ) I was just curious if it is possible to dual bond to SATA 2 ports / connectors together on a 2008 Mac Pro ( which has 2 free sata ports on the logic board ) that way SATA 3 solid state drives do not use up all the bandwidth ( or at least that being the idea ) of one sata 2 port

    Long shot but just curious if it is possible or not.

    I have seen a few websites where they advertise the PCI Express cards for SATA 3 and some of them work on the 2008 mac pro

    I'm pretty sure it's impossible... just buy a PCIe controller (or a PC with 6Gbps SATA ports )

    Think I will just get a PCIe controller card

    a Pants Computer - lol, just kidding. I wanted it more for my mac pro as wanted OS X to run and boot up quicker - money wise I think for the time being it may be cheaper to buy a 300Gb WD Raptor for the time being.

    500mbps on both read and write ( SATA 6gbps )

    any suggestions on any 6gbps card that can go into a mac pro or dual bonding 2 * sata II ports ?
