    Yes I did some reading up on this as I ordered a sata-300(sata2) hard drive and a sata-150(sata) motherboard, and it turns out they are backwards compatible.

    thinking about (2) of these babies:

    oh, and it looks like I missed something
    SecureConnect - provides a 500 percent stronger cable-to-drive connection than first-generation SATA hard drives and cables. Also ensures backward compatibility with legacy SATA cables and backplanes.
    that was the info I was looking for right?

    And already you're kvetching?
    Sheesh.

    Does you're motherboard even support SATA 2?

    BTW, get your RAID array up and running yet?
    Well, didya?
    Hurry, hurry.
    SATA 3 is just around the corner, pretty soon you'll be so far from the cutting edge that you won't even see the blood.

    I am posting now, from the raid, althought I had some problems, like not knowing how to set up raid and whatnot, and then for some reason it kept crying grub error, but alas it booted. I need to find a bench mark tool now.
