What speed should I be getting?

Hello, Iv just upgraded my sons old desktop with an ultra 3d 250gb I am getting read/write speeds of 239mb/s I also tried an ssd plus 480gb which is getting about the same speeds,I think I was getting about 136mb/s from the hhd.I was expecting to get a lot faster speeds or is that the speed to be expected on an old desktop running w10pro 32bit 4gb amd 9550 cpu,thanks

what SATA chipset is in the computer? if it is a SATA II 3Gb chipset the speed you are seeing is normal.

no, you would need a new motherboard.
