I am currenltly building my first gaming PC and I am having a few problems understanding some of the more technical terms.
I just want to make sure that I have everything I need before I buy and that everything will work together.

My question:
This is the Mobo I have chosen Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-GEN3 Intel Z68

I need to make sure that this Motherboard will will work with the SSD I have chosen OCZ Agility 3 60GB 2.5" SATA-3 Solid State Hard Drive

How can I tell if a motherboard will work with a SSD please help :) 

Sorry for silly question, im new to all of this.

I think it will. I'm not sure but I think SSD are simply connected to a SATA port just like HDD's

The specs for the storage for my mobo are Chipset: 2x SATA 6Gb/s, 3x SATA 3Gb/s connectors, 1x eSATA 3 Gbp/s on back panel, w/ SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10
Marvel: 2x SATA 6GB/s w/ SATA RAID 0 and RAID 1

Will my SSD card work with this?

I see no reason the OCZ AGT3-25SAT3-60G wouldn't work. In general, I try to encourage folks to get at least a 120GB SSD otherwise you'll run out of disk space very quickly. Then installing other Apps on your HDD becomes cumbersome and defeats the speed you're trying to gain.

You might want to consider the OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 120GB. The best brands are: Intel, Crucial M4, and Samsung 830.

Trust me if you have large applications like Microsoft Office, Photoshop, etc it can be used up day 1. In general, install your games on the HDD especially if using Steam.
