Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

work with

ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN3 Motherboard - PCIe 3.0 Ready* - Intel LGA1155 - Intel Z68 Chipset - 4x DDR3-2200(O.C) - 2x PCIe x16 (3.0/2.0), 1x PCIe x4, 2x PCIe x1, 2x PCI - 4x SATA3 & 4x SATA2 - 12x USB2.0 & 4x USB3.0 - 1x eSATA 3Gb/s - HDMI , DVI, D-SUB - CrossfireX & SLI Ready - Gigabit LAN - 7.1 CH HD Audio - Bluetooth - ATX

the reason i ask this is because it says 6.0gb/s on the hardrive, in the motherboard description it sats eSARA 3G/s does this mean it isnt compatible? or will be slower or something?

thanks :)

Yeah, SATA is forwards and backwards compatible, there is no reason for it to not work. The hard drive will not max out its SATA bus anyways so there is no performance hit.
