SATA III HDD in a SATA II port?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Planning on getting an SSD for BF4 and my mobo only has one SATA III port, which is currently being used by my Western Digital Caviar Blue 7200RPM 500GB Hard Drive (which is SATA III).

I noticed that this drive can't even touch 200MB/s, let alone SATA II's 300MB/s max speed.
But I'm worried that somehow, using the HDD in a S2 port will bottleneck it.

Is this okay? Will the drive perform the same?
