read your hd manual, it will tell you if it has a jumper or not for sata 150 or if it doesen't.

Jumper= SATA150
No Jumper = SATA300

it has no jumper
I have not installed the hdd yet
but from what I have read about it is that sometimes it can revert to sata150 and you have to download some utility to make it sata300

hdd: 1TB Samsung

If you have a nforce board then you can look in the Device Manager
