Hello,

Dumb question, but I figured I would be better safe than sorry. I have a motherboard with 4 SATA 3Gb/s connections on it, but Seagate (my hdd brand of choice) only has a 160Gb SATA 3Gb/s hdd listed on Newegg (I want 250Gb+). I was wondering if I'd be able to slap some SATA 150s in there, instead of the SATA 3Gb/s.

I might go SATA 3Gb/s for the C:/ drive, and some 300Gb SATA 150s for my media / documents / etc.

Can I do that? I tried Google and Wikipedia, but all I got were cryptic responses discussing the differences between the two (and I really didn't know how to word it).

Yes no problem, it is all backward compatible...
