    SATA III SSD on a SATA II MB?

    Newegg has the Sandisk 120Gb SATA III on sale of $119.99 but my Asus m4a79xtd-evo is a SATA II board. Will it work?
    Thanks.

    Does your board support AHCI correctly?

    It'll work in theory, but older boards can sometimes have issues with SSD that aren't really related to the SATA II/III support. You may find an even better value in one of the SATA-II SSDs.

    SATA is reverse compatible. It'll work, but at the slower data transfer rate of SATAII.
