Default sata question

Im building a few systems for some family members, and im trying to keep the total cost(fully assembeled, monitor,, kb, speakers, etc..)under 500, and im lookin for a hdd. on newegg, i found a 250gb sata 3.0gb/s for 69.99, but the mobo only has sata 150. can a sata 3.0 work on a 150? are the connecters the same or different. i could care less about speed, dad only browses internet, grandma only uses word, and juno, and me, im just gonna get the 350gb model cause i got alotta crap(its a 150, so i dont gotta worry about that)

Have a look at August's newsletter:
http://www.techist.com/showthread.ph...hreadid=117181

There is my guide to Hard Drives. In case you miss the part, or don't feel like reading through the whole thing, I wrote that SATA-II (3Gbps) is backwards compatible, as well as the SATA-II cables.

alright, thanks, thats what i needed to know. also, i got a mouse question: i have 2 mice, one ps2, one wireless usb, when my wireless usb dies, i use my ps2 mouse, but the problem is, as soon as i use the usb mouse the ps2 one disables, but other times, it dosent, like i can use both at the same time. i had to go turn on mouse keys just to type this. ill be back in about 5 min, i have to restart.

****, I didn't get to answer.

Just a reminder, though, you will not get the 3.0gb/s speeds, you will get the 1.5g/s speed..(I believe, I'm just pretty sure..)
