It's a SATA HD on a MoBo w/ SATA capability. The new MoBo can do SATA III and your HD is SATA II but MoBo also has SATA II plugs. No HD can actually perform at SATA III speeds so the interface essentially goes to waste on large transfers....it does help with cache treads tho.

here's some SATA III (6 Gb/s) HD's

To summarize Jack's post: Yes, the drive is compatible with both your old and new motherboards.
