Just a simple straight forward question:
Is it possible to connect a DVD RW Drive on a SATA 6GB/s slot? rather than a 3 GB/s slot?

Yep--and it will run just as fast because the drive can't read data faster than the 3Gb/s data limit anyways.

(Gb/s, not GB/s--it's a byte/bit [B/b] factor of 8 that makes it run at ~300MB/s instead of 2400MB/s).
