Nope. this is just wasting 30 bucks. SATA 6 is only worthwhile for SSDs down the road.
Even the fastest SATA HDD, the Raptor, barely saturates the avaliable bandwidth of SATA1 (150Mbs)

Are there any other motherboards, I'm trying to get all my parts from NCIX because I live near one.

Oh sorry since it seems like i forgot answer one of your questions.

With the stock cooler and simply raising the Multi, ~3.6Ghz would be a conservative limit, though with some voltage tweaking, decent airflow and low ambients, you should be able to hit 4Ghz. However, Im not sure if the version NCIX sells is a C3 or not, if its a C2, then 3.8Ghz more or less.
