I want to upgrade my main drive in my Mac Pro (4,1) to an SSD drive. I read https://inro.in/gotomeeting/ that the 6GB versions aren't needed https://inro.in/irfanview/ for this Mac Pro because it can't take advantage of the extra speed.
Looks like only the 6GB https://inro.in/town-of-salem/ versions are available at Crucial. Is this correct?

Pretty much. Nobody really manufactures SATA II SSDs anymore, there really is no reason to, since SATA III drives will work on SATA II and SATA controllers. So any of our 2.5" SSD options like the MX500 or BX500 would work fine in the system.

@DarylTWD You will also need to purchase a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter to mount the SSD to the Mac Pro's drive sled. Just make sure the adapter will be compatible with the Mac Pro drive sled. Crucial has one here for this purpose. A custom SSD drive sled to replace the original drive sled is also available online, but you will need to make sure it is made for your specific model as Apple changed the length of the sleds between the 2006-8 model and the 2009-2012 Mac Pro models and they are not interchangeable.
