I have an old computer which is SATA II based and have an SATA II SSD. I am thinking of upgrading to a larger SSD but want to know if it will support SATA III SSDs on my SATA II based computer? I know I won't get SATA III speeds of the drive, I just want to know if it will work.

yep it will work no problem as you stated you will be limited by the sata 2 interface so you will not get sata 3 speeds but it will work no problem
