I am planning to buy a new WD caviar black hard disk.
This comes on the standard 2 formats of SATA2 and SATA3.
Though I do have a SATA 3 compatible MoBo,is it really worth going for the SATA3 interface version. I know for a fact that nothing reaches the 6Gb/s Sata 3 transfer limit anyways (For that matter not even 3Gb/s is ever reached)
So should i go ahead and save ~20$ going for SATA2 or go for SATA 3 anyways.

I take it you mean Sata 3.0gbps or Sata 6.0gbps.
There should not be a $20 difference. Why don't you show us the drives your talking about. Likely the $20 difference is a difference in cache or warranty, not speed.
I'd save the $20. SATA3 doesn't add anything of value for spinning disks.
