Are Sata III 6GBs cables backwards compatible?

My motherboard is Sata II. I'm pretty sure Sata is backwards compatible, but I'd like to make sure. Will Sata III cables work on a Sata II board?
I'd pefer to buy Sata III if possible, so it's one less thing to upgrade later.

    The cables are compatible, there is no real difference between sata 1,2,3 cables, its all marketing. Whatever you have will work fine.
