    SATA is backwards compatable. You should have no problems using a SATA2 drive on a SATA3 interface.

    Also, you are confusing your terminology.

    SATA1 = 1.5Gb/s
    SATA2 = 3 Gb/s
    SATA3 = 6Gb/s
  2. oh thx for help.

    So which SATA3 drives u recommend?
  3. My computer is a couple years old so it doesn't support SATA3, so I haven't researched them throughly.

    In general, I prefer WD (western digital) black series drives and seagates.
