    So, I was thinking about getting this to fit an SSD on my Mac Pro 3.1:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005B0A6...TF8&colid=2JRAX8IBFH4WS&coliid=I1980J80AEU305

    Since it doesn't have any sort of plate to put the SSD on it, how would I actually fit the SSD inside the Mac Pro?
    I thought that maybe one of those 2.5 to 3.5 drive sleds would work but I'm not sure how the cable from the SSD to the PCI-E card would fit...

    Thanks,
    Renato

    I know the Apricorn Velocity X2 cards support 6Gbps SATA SSDs on a PCIe x2 card mounted on a slot (but they have the mounts on the card to make it fit) I wouldnt expect a Syba card with a ASmedia 1061 chip to work on mac (I have that syba card but in the eSata version in my PC)

    I did take a look at the Apricorn, but I can't find it anywhere in Europe. The only way I could get it would be from Ebay. With delivery costs it would set me for around 140$..

    Still looking for cheaper alternatives, any ideas?

    Portugal.

    I just went to Apricorn's website and found some European Dealers (why didn't I thought of that before?) -_-

    It's still a bit over my budget, though.

    OK, no problem! ;) What's the minimum price you found with a European dealer?

    85.95£ at MegaMac.Co.Uk. (excluding shipping costs)
    That's almost 150$
