Hello I Have Question; Well Thing Is I'm Looking To Add More Storage
My Motherboard has 5 x SATA 3Gb/s Ports & 4.1 x IDE connector

So Will It Make Difference if I Buy This WD Blue 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s Will That Be Compatible?

I Have Roughly 1,000 Movies Scattered on 7 Different HDD's And I Need To Organize
All My Music And Movies

That hdd will work fine on the Sata ports you have, but will be limited to the 3gb/s transfer rates. The difference should not be noticeable for what you are doing.

+1 for above, hdd-s can't saturate the sata 3gb/s ports so no problems
