Most likely, a SATA III is the way to go.
Goto www.HardOCP.com, and at the botton menu, click on SSD, and then the article about NAND Syncrnious vs Asyncronious, which tells you a lot abut the current state of SSD drives, and which is better

I checked the Intel motherboard database. All of the Asus P6T models are SATA 2 3Gb/s boards.

Phippsy - What do you do with your computer? Gaming? Professional work? PC use makes a difference in the selection process. Will you be upgrading your motherboard in the next 12 months?

I wrote a blog about using SATA III on a SATA II MB - check it out - http://www.blog.solidstatediskshop.com/?p=11
The SATA III SSD will use a lot more power on a SATA II port

Meaning what? 0.6 instead of 0.15 watts? That can't possibly be significant, can it?

kajabla - It is significant for a battery operated laptop but not for a desktop pc.

fillrobs - The Asus PT6 series motherboards are ATX boards for desktop pc's. SSD battery power consumption is not an issue.
