Default SATA 3.0GB/s drive on SATA150 port

Is it possible to use a SATA 3.0GB/s hard drive on a motherboard that only supports SATA150?

Thanks, just ordered a 250 gig, 16 MB cache western digital.

Shyed away from the Maxtor models, seems like a lot of people complain about them.

Tell me how you enjoy the 16MB cache. Still debating is it worth it to upgrade from 8MB
