    Hey guys, I'm buying a new HDD which is going to be a WD Caviar Black 640GB 64MB Cache. It is a SATA III and i'm wandering will it be compatible on my motherboard? Will it fit in the SATA slot in which my WD Caviar Blue 500GB is slotted on? Thanks and is the HDD I'm getting good? I'm giving my old one to my brother cause he needs a new one

    yes it will work perfectly fine, that is a very decent drive.

    nice performance.


    Sata 1 2 and 3 will all work together.

    SATA devices are all compatible with each other, so yes it will work, and no it will not slow anything down.
