It would be obvious faster but should check out whether it would go on with your system.

"Most" hard drives would be fine with the SATA I spec... The only time it would be faster is when reading from the onboard cache!

Mechanical hard drives will fine for a while with SATA II unless you are going Raid 0.

USB 3 will become more important for people with external storage.

Not yet...

I'm sure the manufactures will make them faster soon.
