I have a D865PERL Mobo right now, and am using a Western Digital Caviar 160GB HD with sata right now. I'm looking to upgrade to either a Caviar Black or Blue, but I'm unsure if I can because of my old setup. From what I know, my mobo only supports 1.5 g/b sata, and I'm not sure if my current hdd is 1.5 or 3.0. I have 2 questions:

1) How do I know if my current hdd is a 1.5 or 3.0 sata?

and

2) Despite what my current hdd is, can I use a WD Caviar Blue or black with my mobo?

Thanks

1) post or google the model number

2) yes. A 3gb sata (2.0) connected to a 1.5gb (1.0) motherboard will negotiate to the lower speed. Which is fast enough for most single HDs anyways.

Hi to everyone, I have same Mobo but I would like to upgrade to a SSD Sata III like OCZ SSD interne Agility 3. This is only temporary since I am planning to upgrade the Mobo as well. Do you think that the OCZ SSD interne Agility 3 is compatible with the Mobo? Otherwise what brand do you recommend? I prefer SSD.

Thanks
