I understand that the full read/write capabilities would not be utilized, but I just want to know if it would run.
I ask because my computer isn't old enough to the point where I want to replace my motherboard with one that has a 6Gbps interface.
That way, when I do upgrade the motherboard, I'll already have an SSD that can make use of the 6Gbps interface.
Also, would the 510 series SSD be damaged in any way from running on a 3Gbps interface for a while until I replace the motherboard?

Awesome. Thanks for the reply :) 

As far as my other question, is the possibility of the drive being damaged uncertain? I guess we wouldn't know until someone tests it out...
What do you think?

You have the same chance of the drive being damaged in a SATA III slot, as you would on the SATA II slot... It will make no difference to the SSD, outside of performance.

You asked about Intel's 510 series ssd's which are SATA III (6 Gb/s) capable. Intel issued a press release today. The new ssd's should be released tomorrow. I know there will be at least 3 technical reviews published tomorrow or within a few days. The reviews should make for some interesting reading.

I'll keep a look out for those reviews for sure.
