    my mobo only supports sata150, however my hard drive is sata 300. can i add a pci card and get sata300 speeds?
    i doubt it

    btw, i don't have pci-x either. i should probably just replace the mobo or turn it into a server/dvr

    interface speed is meaningless right now.
    no drive exists that can use all of the 150's bandwidth

    The only difference you could see would be if the sata 3 drive has ncq.

    Ncq will not work on sata 150.

    But even then, you probably wouldn't see a measurable difference from day to day computing.
