GA-890GPA-UD3H

I'm thinking of buying the GA-890GPA-UD3H. My questions is, can I connect a SATA-I DVD-R to a SATA3 connector? Also, can I boot from that SATA-I drive?

    Yes, all SATA 'levels' are 'backward compatible'...

    Yes - same as above...

    My question is - why would you want to 'burden' a 6Gb/S channel with a 1.5Gb/S device? Just hook it up to one of the GSATA (jMicron) ports...
