it really won't make a difference with current hdd's. SATAII isn't really any faster yet, it is only theoretically faster meaning it could have much higher speeds but no hdd has reached them yet. are you sure your motherboard has SATAII?

As long as the motherboard supports it, it will work. You can disable the NCQ.
