    SATA vs SATA II

    In addition to looking at a new motherboard, I'm also beginning to consider a refurbished computer where I'd replace that hard drive with my current C: drive, which leads to the question: if a computer comes with a SATA II hard drive, can I plug a SATA drive in and have it work?

    Thanks.

    The biggest difference between the two is the theoretical maximum transfer rate. So, you should be able to attach the solwer SATA driver and have it work. For more information start with Serial ATA and Serial ATA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
