Hi all, I have an Asus Z68 motherboard and the i2600k CPU. Currently i'm using a 3Gbps hardrive. If I were to switch to a 6Gbps hardrive, will I notice an increase in performance?
 
Maybe, maybe not. You are simply referring to the interface maximum transfer speed, but there are other things to consider like platter speed, seek time, etc.

Also, your usage matters. In other words, are you editing large video files that need to quickly steam, or are you using large database apps where random read/write speed is more important?
