Yes, my board has GSata2 and Sata2 interfaces.
I think Serephucus has given me the answer though.
When a device says it is Sata3, will it still be backwards compatible with Sata2 as I have read about some SSDs advertising they are backwards compatible while there is no mention of it in others for sale so is there an issue there that your Sata3 SSD might not be compatible with your Sata2 Mobo ?
I suppose the potential speed will be throttled back but will the connections be different ?
reading the specs for Sata2 and it looks like I would never get the full read write speeds advertised on the SSD, limited to 300MB/s but with the Revo drive by passing the Sata2 bottle neck I should be able to get the full read write speeds shouldnt I ?
