n00b SATA question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
If I get a MoBo that supports SATA II, will I be able to use a HDD that is Serial ATA150 with it?

Thanks

Yes, you will. Just be sure to put the programs you use more on the Sata Drive!

He's talking about an SATA drive -- SATA I is 150 mb/s. Regardless of that misunderstanding you were right. It will work due to backwards compatibility.

Thanks

Backwards compatability is a truly excellent thing (99% of the time)

aight, i have a noob question, well three.
1. is sata II that much faster
2. can you attach sata 1 cable to sata II ports? or are they completly different.
3. sata II has little clippy things that keep it connected, right? because sata 1 don't and it is a royal b***h to keep connected sometimes.
