Can I run a SATA 1.5 Gb/s HDD through a SATA 3.0 Gb/s port?

So, I'm looking to build a computer, but want to make it cheap but an upgrade from what I'm using right now (which isn't really too hard) and the HDD I have right now is a SATA 1.5 Gb/s connection, but the motherboard I'm looking at only has SATA 3.0 Gb/s connections. Am I going to run into any problems if I plug the HDD into the SATA port on the motherboard, and if so, are there simple fixes?

Thanks in advance for your help. :) 

Here are links to the motherboard I'm looking at and the HDD I have.

SATA is backwards compatible so you will have no problems.
