  1. SATA 2 cables should work at SATA 3 speeds unless they are poor quality.
    Benchmark your SSD with ATTO benchmark software; if your Read/Write speeds are greater than 300MB/s then you know your cables can handle SATA 3 speeds.

    Here's a link for quality SATA 3 cables that are very inexpensive: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10226&cs_id=1022602&p_id=4542&seq=1&format=2
