Sata 3.0Gbs question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
If i have a mobo that only supports SATA and not SATA 3.0, i'm guessing that if i bought a SATA 3.0gbs that it would only run as fast as the mobo would let it but it would still be compatible??

Yes, SATA 3.0 is backwards compatible with SATA150. You don't get any of the features of SATA 3.0 with a SATA150 motherboard, but it will be compatible.

Yeah, I have a SATA 3.0 board and it's nice to have NCQ enabled.

i just ordered 2 WD 160GB SATAII Drives from newegg. I'm gonna Raid them. I've heard that 2 of those in RAID are close to the Raptor in performance.
