I have an Asus A8N SLI mobo with SATA 1. I planned to add another hard disk but I wonder if the new SATA 3 hard disk is backward compatible with this mobo.

Please advise, thanks.

They are backward compatible but on some you may have to set the jumpers but the manual or mfg website will tell you if it's necessary and if so, what the settings are
