    I just bought a new HD and i didnt realize the differences in the types. So i have a SATA 2 Wester Digital 250 Gb harddrive i can't return. My only option now is to get a SATA 2 controller. I am really confused on the options. I know i have to a get a PCI type. WHat exactly am i lookin for? Thanks

    Inconvenient as it may seem right now, you'll really like having that better drive.

    Um...someone already posted an answer to that, but it's disappeared. Actually, part of my answer is gone, too.

    The other person's answer, which I agree with, is that you don't need an SATA-2 controller as long as you have any kind of SATA controller. The reason for this is because no hard drive in existence can possibly deliver data fast enough to overwhelm even the slowest SATA controller.

    If you don't have any SATA controller yet, then yes, the thing you posted will work.
