will this ssd be suitable for these 2 machines? and what sata cable?


hi there, so as ive posted before I am upgrading a dell inspiron 530 and I will be putting an ssd into it so I can boot it from Linux as theres no way im paying 80 quid on a piece of new windows software that’s potentially worth more than the machine its on also ive had bad experiences with windows 10 anyway, so what I need to know is, will this ssd be compatible with a dell inspiron 530? :

(I cant link to that for whatever reason so please copy and paste)

I see that there are apparent differences between sata 1, 2 and 3? and that my pc may not be compatible with sata 3 because of its age? if that is the case could any of you link me to another more suitable ssd on amazon instead? it has to be amazon as I have £9 gift card credit on it which I would like to use up, could you also direct me towards the correct sata cable to use with the dell too? I am looking for the best possible ssd and cable I can install on that machine but still somewhat cheap and it seems that kingstons are the most reliable as far as I can tell?

as mentioned in the description, I also plan to install an ssd on my hp pavilion g6 2365 ea laptop and rip out the hard drive as a final solution IF nothing else works (the problems im having with it at the moment have also been mentioned on this forum) so would the above mentioned ssd work with that laptop or is it not sata 3 compatible either?

answers greatly appreciated

thank you
