Hi!

I have old M/B A8N-SLI Deluxe ( http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_939/A8NSLI_... ) with next specification:
Quote:
Storage Southbridge
2 xUltraDMA 133/100/66/33
4 xSATA 3Gb/s ports Support RAID 0,1,0+1,JBOD
Silicon Image® 3114R RAID controller
4 xSATA with RAID0, 1,10, and RAID5

I want buy new HDD with SATA-III interface but my M/B don't support HDD SATA-III interface.
If I buy HDD with SATA-III interface he will be work on my M/B?

HDD SATA-III interface compatible with M/B with SATA 3Gb/s ports?

Thanks!
