SSD read and right.

What am I doing wrong that I can't get my SSD to read and right  over 250mbs with HD Tune and Atto bench program. I have my SSD on 3.0 sata cable and I even bout a a PCIE sata 3.0 6gb controller card, but I still can't get past 250mbs. Any help would be cool. I am running windows 7 64 bit. 7gbs 6400 ddr2 memory. 1000w power supply. GeForce 560 ti video card. A biostar p43-a7 mother board. Intel 3.0ghz core 2 duo processor. 120gb OZC agility 3 SSD.

You may be otherwise limited i.e. cpu limited.. Was it a significant upgrade in the speed you were getting before?

This benchmarking review shows your drive is about right for that model: http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=762&Itemid=60&limit=1&limitstart=6

I'm guessing you are benching the same SSD you are booting from.  If so, then you are getting much more I/O then you give the SSD credit for.  The benchmark isn't factoring in everything else that is going on in your computer. It is only measuring the benchmark I/O.

If you want a decent benchmark, you need to boot to another O/S and not mount the drive and run raw I/O at physical device.  Based on this premise, the numbers you are getting are perfectly reasonable.
