I am in the process of buying some parts in order to build my own computer for the first time. With the motherboard I am going to use:
ASRock 960GM-GS3 FX Motherboard ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/ASRock-960GM-GS3-FX-Motherboard... )
I was intending to use this HDD:
Western Digital Caviar Blue 250GB SATAIII ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Western-Digital-Caviar-SATAIII-... )

However i was told that the motherboard does not support SATA3, it only supports SATA2. I have no idea what SATA3/SATA2 actually mean and would be very thankful if someone could explain it to me and possibly post a link to a suitable 250gb HDD for around the same price or cheaper.

Thanks
!
