    Or do I need a completely new motherboard/SATA controller? What about SATA cables? :hs:

    I want to use a 300gb SATA II 7200.9 Barracude HDD on my K8N Msi Neo2 Platinum Motherboard. It's an Nforce 3 model.

    SATA-II is backwards-compatible with SATA.

    A SATA-II will connect to your SATA controller using a standard SATA cable.
